#339 Focal Nesidioblastosis in an Adult
Introduction: Nesidioblastosis is an uncommon cause of persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) in adults. Although it is well-described in infants, the pathophysiology in adults is poorly understood.

#1057 Localisation of Insulinoma and Beta-Cells: Comparison of Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor (GLP1-R) SPECT/CT, PET/CT and MRI. Preliminary Results of a Prospective Clinical Study.
Introduction: SPECT/CT imaging with GLP1-R specific radiotracers like 111In-DOTA-exendin-4 have already proved to be a useful tool for the preoperative localisation of insulinomas. PET/CT has several advantages over SPECT/CT: lower radiation exposure, less time consumption and higher spatial resolution.

#1295 Intra-Operative Portal Vein Insulin Assay Combined with Occlusion of the Pancreas for Complicated Pancreatogenous Hypoglycemia
Introduction: Pancreatogenous hypoglycemia is a rare endocrine disorder. The precise localization of hypersecreting tissue and determination of complete resection are two main challenges for complicated pancreatogenous hypoglycemia, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes type-1 (MEN-1) and nesidioblastosis.

#50 Clinical-morphology correlation in diagnostics and evaluating surgery results of pancreatic insulinoma and nesidiobastosis
Introduction: Organic hyperinsulinism syndrome (OHS) is revealed in 85% cases of pancreas insulinoma. Nesidioblastosis (NB) induces OHS in 15% of the cases. Surgical cure provides all symptoms of insulinoma disappearing, while cytoreductive operation results in considerable improvement of life quality. There is no intraoperative opportunity to reveal insulinoma grade, even if an urgent biopsy is performed. Thus, it is essential to determine the cause of OHS and to apply the surgical cure method during the preoperational period, thereby improving the long-term prognosis.

#1918 Case Study: Immunotherapy in a Young Adult with Atypical Neuroendocrine Tumour
Introduction: Use of immunotherapy PD-1 antibody has emerged as a novel therapeutic option for treating multiple solid tumors. In the setting of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), little is known. Currently, trials are underway investigating its use in high-grade NETs, but outcomes remain to be seen

#2181 Using Adult Stem-Cell Derived Organoids to Model Neuroendocrine Tumor Growth
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a genetically diverse set of rare tumors, which have limited treatment options. The development of more effective therapies for NETs has been limited in part by the absence of in vitro and in vivo models that accurately represent the heterogeneity of these tumors.

#30 Diffuse Idiopathic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia
Introduction: Normal adult lungs contain scattered pulmonary neuroendocrine cells (PNEC). Reactive PNEC hyperplasia is commonly observed in persons who live at high altitude, in cigarette smokers, and in numerous lung diseases. Diffuse Idiopathic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare entity in which PNEC hyperplasia appears without predisposing conditions. According to the 1999 WHO lung tumor classification, DIPNECH is thought to be primarily a neuroendocrine proliferative process, which can be associated with carcinoid tumors and with a clinical picture of constrictive obliterative bronchiolitis. To date, available data regarding the treatment and the prognosis of this rare condition is limited.

#57 Clinical and demographic characteristics in patients newly diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors (NET)
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are tumors that form from cells that release hormones in response to a signal from the nervous system. These tumors may secrete higher-than-normal amounts of hormones, which can cause many different symptoms.
