#15 Gastroduodenal ulceration associated with radioembolization for the treatment of liver malignancies, a newly observed complication: Institutional experience and review of the literature
Introduction: Microsphere radioembolization is a method of delivering radiation therapy directly to tumors, thereby minimizing toxicity to adjacent structures. Despite the relatively high precision of this modality, numerous adverse effects have been recognized. One particularly untoward complication is the development of severe gastroduodenal ulceration.

#2766 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Arising in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Clinical Features of 69 Cases and Literature Review
Introduction: An increased prevalence of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) has been reported in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, we know little about IBD complicating NENs.

#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.

#17 Diagnostic efficacy of the secretin stimulation test for the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: an intra-individual comparison using different dosages in patients and controls
Introduction: The diagnosis of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is suspected in patients with symptoms of gastric acid hypersecretion, i.e., peptic ulcer disease, malabsorption or diarrhea, or with elevated fasting serum gastrin levels. However, symptoms can be masked by the use of proton pump inhibitors and fasting serum gastrin values are not always conclusive. Therefore, the secretin stimulation test is advocated as the principal diagnostic tool to identify the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

#66 Adrenocortical cancer: a therapeutic approach with everolimus (RAD001)
Introduction: Adrenocortical cancer (ACC) is a rare disease with very poor outcome. ACC responds poorly to standard chemotherapy. Mitotane, used as adjuvant therapy to surgery, prolongs recurrence-free survival, but the response is limited to 23% of patients and resistance occurs in the majority of patients (1). There is no curative therapy for ACC. Pre-clinical studies have shown involvement of both IGF-2/IGF-1R and Akt/mTOR pathways in ACC, and IGF-1R and mTOR inhibitors inhibited cell proliferation of human adrenocortical carcinoma cell lines in vitro (2,3,4).

#283 Primary Lymph Node Gastrinoma: A Genuine Entity? Two Case Reports and a Review of the Literature
Introduction: The existence of primary lymph node gastrinoma has been proposed but is controversial. We report two cases (Case A - 37-year-old male, Case B - 43-year-old male) of apparent primary lymph node gastrinoma.

#461 The Good, the Bad, the Unexpected
Introduction: GEP NETs constitute less than 2% of all gastrointestinal malignancies; usually they are age-related with the highest incidence above the fifth decade. Primary GEP NETs are often asymptomatic, sometimes being incidentally discovered in resected surgical specimens when surgery has been undertaken for other intra-abdominal disease.
