#59 Incidence and clinical significance of adrenal masses in patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: The widespread application of modern imaging modalities, mainly computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), has revealed a 2-3% incidence of inadvertently discovered adrenal masses, the majority of which are non-functioning benign adrenal adenomas. In the presence of a known malignancy, such lesions have a more than 30% incidence of being metastases. As patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETS) have mainly well-differentiated and slow-growing tumors and are subject to routine abdominal imaging for disease staging or during follow-up, it is important to study the incidence and significance of such lesions based on the recently introduced TNM classification system.

#3090 Retrospective Experience with Pherochromocytoma (PH) and Paraganglioma (PG) in a Single Argentinian Institution
Introduction: Pherochromocytoma (PH) and paraganglioma (PG) are neuroendocrine tumors arising in cromaffin cells in the adrenal medulla or extra adrenal paraganglia respectively. Clinical presentation is diverse. All PG/PH have malignant potential. Hereditary cases comprise up to 40% of all PG/PH.

#2716 Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Upper Urinary Tract: A Case Report
Introduction: There are no dedicated guidelines for treatment of urothelial NEC given disease rarity. An aggressive approach, including neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy + nephroureterectomy and adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy, is recommended.

#2743 Mimics of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Identified in a Single Consultation Center between 2009 and 2019
Introduction: Immunohistochemical expression of synaptophysin (SYN), chromogranin (CgA) and cytokeratin are essential for diagnosis of NENs. Non-NENs, however, may occasionally also express NE-markers and cytokeratin and cause diagnostic difficulties.

#2763 Incidence and Outcome of Brain Metastasis in Patients Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Neoplasm
Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system.

#2885 Ectopic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: An Occult Source of ACTH
Introduction: About 250 cases of ectopic ACTH-producing neuroendocrine carcinoma (ACTH-NEC) have been reported; however metastatic ACTH-NEC of unknown primary is very rare. Usually are characterized by having a large cell, small cell, poorly differentiated or anaplastic cell, and Ki-67 index between 40-90%.

#2945 Misdiagnosis of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma - A Potential Threat
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are a rare clinical entity.Very less data is available in Pakistan on PNETs.Common metastatic sites are liver, lung and brain Reports involving metastasis to breast are almost negligible.

#2972 Characteristics and Management of Paragangliomas, 10 Years Experience
Introduction: Paraganglioma (PG) is a rare extra-adrenal neuroendocrine tumor, with common sites of presentation being abdomen, and head and neck region. The majority of PGs appear to be sporadic. However, almost half of cases are associated with an inherited syndrome. The highest malignancy rates are seen in paragangliomas (PGs) associated with SDHB mutations, which are usually abdominal and secretory.

#3071 Hormonal Ectopic Secretion Syndromes Associated to Neuroendocine Neoplasia
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasias (NEN) are able to produce and secrete bioactive peptides and cause distinct syndromes related to their biological effects. The outcome will depend on the oncological disease as well as the hormonal syndrome
