#3076 Endometrial Small Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Endometrial small-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (ESCNEC) is extremely rare. It is characterized by early regional and systemic spread leading to rapid development of lymph nodes, pelvic and extrapelvic metastasis and compromising the outcome.

#2832 Lymph Node Merkel Cell Carcinoma without Primary: Long Term Survival
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare aggressive cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma with a high rate of metastasis. Approximately 5% of MCC are found in the lymph nodes (LNs) without a primary tumor on the skin.

#3005 Comparison between Tang and WHO 5th Edition Grade Classification for Goblet Cell Adenocarcinomas
Introduction: Appendiceal GCAs (previously Goblet Cell Carcinoids) are composed of cells with secretory phenotypes. Several grading systems to predict behaviour are available (e.g.Tang). The latest WHO 5th edition adopted a grading system similar to colon adenocarcinomas.

#2774 Metastatic Merkel Cell Carcinoma Associated Paraneoplastic Hyponatraemia: Response to Avelumab
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is rare, encompassing primary cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma.It has an aggressive natural history, and exhibits high response rates to radiotherapy & chemotherapy but often of short duration.

#2796 Avelumab for Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma in the Netherlands; A Nationwide Survey
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare, tumor of the skin associated with high recurrence rates and poor survival. Clinical trials have shown activity of checkpoint inhibitors targeting programmed death-(ligand)-1 (PD-(L)1). Avelumab is the only PD-L1 inhibitor that has been approved in the Netherlands for advanced/metastatic MCC (mMCC).

#2927 Systemic Chemotherapy for Inoperable Goblet Cell Adenocarcinomas (GCAs) and the Role of Anti-EGFR Antibodies
Introduction: Appendiceal GCAs (previously Goblet Cell Carcinoids) have variable behaviour. Systemic chemotherapy (Chemo) is often extrapolated from colon cancer. KRAS mutations (KRAS-mut) are rare and more often present in Tang-C/high grade. The role of anti-EGFR antibodies (MoAb) is unknown.

#3027 Impact of Small Cell (SC) versus (vs.) Non-Small Cell (nSC) Morphology on Outcomes of Patients (pts) with Extra-Pulmonary, Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (EP-PD-NEC)
Introduction: The 2018 SEER data indicates EP-PD-NEC morphology (SC vs. nSC) may impact patient outcomes.

#2739 Epigenetic Landscape of Pancreatic Neuro-Endocrine Tumors Reveals Distinct Cells of Origin and Means of Tumor Progression
Introduction: Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs) arise from cells of the Islets of Langerhans. The majority of PanNETs are non-functional and their cell of origin cannot be defined analysing specific hormone production. Cell of origin assessment has proven importance to identify risk factors, prevent tumour development, and tailor treatment in many malignancies. Recent data on super-enhancer signatures has suggested a potential origin of PanNET from α- or β-cells. We and others have shown that distinct epigenetic profiles assessed by DNA methylation (DNAme) characterize genomic and prognostic groups of PanNET.

#3035 Large-Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Lung in Elderly Patient: Case Report and Review of Literature
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for less than 25% of lung cancers.Which is a rare malignant tumor with an aggressive profile has often already affected lymph nodes at presentation and it is de novo metastatic in nearly 40% of cases.

#3089 Mixed Large and Small Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Endometrium: A Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is an extremely rare subtype of endometrial cancer which is usually seen among perimenopausal or postmenopausal women. It runs an aggressive course and posts a clinical challenge due to limited treatment options available.
