#650 Incidental Diagnosis as Prognostic Factor in Different Tumor-Stages of Non-Functioning Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors
Introduction: Although incidental diagnosis of non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NF-pNETs) is not an assurance of benign behavior, incidental NF-pNETs are associated with improved survival after resection.

#847 Incidental Pathological Finding of Pancreatic Non-Functioning Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Little is known about the incidental finding of non-functioning NETs (Neuroendocrine Tumors) during pancreatic surgery performed for other reasons or during pathological examination of the surgical sample.

#544 Second Primary Tumor in Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEPNETs): Data From a Retrospective Observational Unicentric Study
Introduction: It is known that GEPNETs are associated with a high incidence of second primary tumors, especially in the context of inherited syndromes and synchronous injuries to the intestine.

#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.

#296 Tumor Size Correlates With Malignancy in Non-Functioning Pancreatic Endocrine Tumor
Introduction: Tumor size is a criterion of staging in non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NF-PET), as well as a predictor of outcome after curative resection.

#2185 Nonfunctional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (NF PNET) Imaging and Evaluation Using 18F-FDG and 68Ga- DOTANOC-PET/CT: Initial Data of a Prospective Study
Introduction: Predicting aggressive behavior of NF PNET still remains controversial. It is known that lymph node metastases are rare but possible also on small (1-2 cm) NF-PNET. Positive 18F-FDG-PET/CT avidity is associated with poor prognosis in NETs.

#1122 Clinicopathological Characteristics and Long Term Survival Analysis of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Incidentalomas: An Experience of 39 Cases from a Single Chinese Institute
Introduction: Pancreatic incidentaloma was found by coincidence without specific presentation like pancreatogenic abdominal pain,palpable mass,obstructive jaundice and endocrine symptoms.The characteristics and prognosis of the tumor were rarely discussed.

#37 Gastric GIST with synchronous neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas, Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: The Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. These are rare tumors with an incidence of 15 new cases per million per year. They often occur in individuals over the age of 40 years, without gender predominance. The clinical behavior is variable and benign tumors are the most common. They can develop anywhere in the GI tract, but are more frequent in the stomach and small intestine. The primary treatment, when located, is the surgical resection, which can be complemented with the use of imatinib.
The occurrence of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas is rare, representing 1-5% of pancreatic cancers, and it is estimated that its incidence does not exceed 5 to one million. The tumors considered nonfunctioning (15-32% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors) are not associated with any syndrome, and are usually incidental. They have a slight predominance in males, and are more frequent in the 6th decade of life. Nonfunctioning tumors of islet cells are virtually all malignant tumors, and the treatment consists of surgical resection.

#917 The Second Non-Metastatic Tumor in Romanian Patients with NETs
Introduction: NETs involve aggressive evolution as progression of primary tumor. Some cases associate a second apparently non-related tumor.
