#255 The Carcinoid Syndrome Caused by Retroperitoneal Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: The carcinoid syndrome is caused by increased levels of serotonin and is mostly seen in cases of carcinoid tumor in the small bowel and liver metastases, as there is a very high first pass effect.

#423 Case Report : A Rare Cause of Retroperitoneal Fibrosis Responding to Steroids
Introduction: Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare inflammatory disease. Neuroendocrine tumors are a heterogenous group that arise from enterochromaffin cells, most commonly in the gastrointestinal tract. Their capacity to secrete hormones, five HT, tachykinins etc, are responsible for symptoms known as carcinoid syndrome. However NETS, particularly arising from the midgut, can cause fibrosis. This can result in bowel obstruction, but also cause fibrosis in the retroperitoneum, lungs and cardiac valvular fibrosis.

#1729 Outstanding Response to Sunitinib in a Patient with Unresectable Retroperitoneal Paraganglioma
Introduction: Pheochromocitomas and Paragangliomas (PCs/PGLs) are rare neuroendocrine tumors arising from the adrenal medulla and extra-adrenal ganglia. Around 30-40% of these neoplasms are genetically determined. PCs/PGLs arising from the sympathetic chain can synthesize bioactive amines leading to typical syndromes, in contrast to parasympathetic PGLs that are mainly non-secretory.

#1006 The Use of Endoluminal Stents to Overcome Vascular Obstruction Arising from Mesenteric and Retroperitoneal Neuroendocrine Metastases
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) often metastasise to lymph nodes. Nodal metastases from neuroendocrine tumors in the distal small intestine commonly (>50%) develop in the mesentery and are often centred at the mesenteric root surrounding the major vessels supplying the bowel. Compression of these vessels, by the nodes or associated fibrosis, can lead to severe symptoms such as pain (secondary to bowel ischaemia ), ascites (from superior mesenteric vein obstruction) and bowel perforation. In view of the often indolent nature of GEP-NET, symptoms from lymph node masses can persist for years, causing significant morbidity and early mortality.

#797 Ganglioneuroma of Retroperitoean
Introduction: Ganglioneuromas presented as a retroperitoneal tumor around vital organs is a rare entity. A case with unusual presentation is reported. Forty-four-year-old woman presented without any complaint, found during incidental abdominopelvic ultrasound.

#317 Paraganglioma: Gallium-68 DOTOTATE PET CT Scanning, a Useful Addition to MIBG Scanning in Metastatic Disease
Introduction: Nuclear imaging forms an important part of the assessment of chromaffin cell tumors. MIBG scintigraphy has been available for some time, while 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT is increasingly utilized.

#931 A Case of Adrenal Pheochromocytoma Rupture Treated with Transarterial Embolization (TAE)
Introduction: Spontaneous hemorrhage within a pheochromocytoma resulting in capsular rupture and hemorrhage is a rare condition, but also catastrophic and highly lethal event. An emergent operation for pehochromocytoma rupture is higher mortality than elective operation, and misdiagnosis and failure to control the hemorrhage lead directly to 100% mortality.

#2218 More than Rare Pheochromocytomas: Bilateral and Hemorrhagic, Giant and Metastatic
Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCC) are rare neuroendocrine tumors. These catecholamine-secreting tumors, with an average size of 4.9cm, are multiple in 10% of cases. About 10% are malignant but distant metastases are rare. Non-traumatic adrenal hemorrhage is an unusual potentially fatal event seen in PCC.

#149 Giant adrenal tumor: a case report
Introduction: A gigantic adrenal tumor is a challenge regarding diagnosis before surgery and pathological exam, but also related to the surgical approach itself due to multiple risks.

#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.
