#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.

#64 Sustained response to anti IGFR-1R monoclonal antibody combined with docetaxel in a patient with metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma
Introduction: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare neoplasm with poor prognosis. Treatment results in advanced disease are disappointing and median survival is less than 12 months. There is no standard chemotherapy, even though mitotane and cisplatin-based regimens are frequently used with limited efficacy. In vitro data suggest that overexpressed insulin growth factor-2 (IGF-2) acting via the IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) is relevant for ACC and that the IGF-1R and 2R pathway is a promising target.

#858 Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Ectopic Cushing Syndrome: Could Everolimus Be a Safe Therapeutic Option?
Introduction: Everolimus(E) has proved effective in prolonging PFS in advanced P-NETs. As E is a substrate of CYP3A4 co-administration with ketoconazole (k), a strong inhibitor of CYP3A4 used to control hypercortisolism, should be avoided.
