#2775 Glucagonoma: Still a Misleading Disease and the Importance of Multidisciplinary Neuroendocrine Tumor Board
Introduction: Glucagonoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of the pancreatic alpha cells that results in the overproduction of the hormone glucagon. This entity is typically associated with a rash called necrolytic migratory erythema, weight loss and diabetes.

#74 Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors: diagnostic criteria and surgical treatment
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors were considered rare tumors several years ago. Several reports published recently have observed increased incidence of NETs suggesting that NETs are more prevalent than previously reported. Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NFPETs), better defined as non-hyperfunctioning, are characterized by the absence of clinical or biochemical evidence of hormone hypersecretion. From the clinical standpoint, NFPETs can be either occasionally encountered or manifest clinically similar pancreatic tumors. Since both NFPET treatment and prognosis significantly differ from that of ductal adenocarcinoma and other pancreatic malignant tumors, an accurate differential diagnosis is needed.
