#434 Treatment, Survival and Prognostic Markers in Patients with Thymic Carcinoids: A Clinicopathologic Study of 28 Cases
Introduction: Thymic carcinoids are uncommon but malignant tumors, usually associated with a poor prognosis. The number of cases reported is limited to a few hundred and there are few prognostic factors available.

#247 Carcinoid Metastases to the Breast: More Common than Previously Thought. A Presentation of 13 Cases
Introduction: Metastases from carcinoid tumors to the breast have been described as a rare phenomenon. Presentation and cytopathologic findings of these tumors can closely mimic that of a mammary carcinoma.

#1318 MEN1 Associated Thymic Neuroendocrine Tumors in Oulu University Hospital Finland
Introduction: Thymic neuroendocrine tumors (TNET) are rare and account 2-5% of all thymic tumors. TNET can occur either sporadically or as a manifestation of an inherited tumor syndrome such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1). The prognosis is severe.

#1367 Thymic Neuroendocrine Neoplasia: Therapy with Everolimus
Introduction: Due to the low incidence of 0.02/100 000 no established medical therapy for thymic neuroendocrine neoplasia (t-NEN) exists.

#139 Association of carcinoid with noncarcinoid neoplasms
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.

#1918 Case Study: Immunotherapy in a Young Adult with Atypical Neuroendocrine Tumour
Introduction: Use of immunotherapy PD-1 antibody has emerged as a novel therapeutic option for treating multiple solid tumors. In the setting of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), little is known. Currently, trials are underway investigating its use in high-grade NETs, but outcomes remain to be seen

#1426 Pseudotumor of Thymus Occuring After Hypercortisolism Recovery: Case Report
Introduction: Cushing syndrome is due to an ectopic secreting adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in 10 % to 20% of cases. Among them, thymic tumors represent almost half of cases. It has been described that patients sometimes develop benign hyperplasia after hypercortisolism correction.

#524 Sunitinib in a MEN-1 Patient with Small Cell Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Thymus
Introduction: MEN-1 is an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutation of the oncosuppressor gene menin. MEN-1 is typically associated with hyperparathyroidism, islet cell tumors and pituitary adenomas, but it can also be associated with other neoplasms, such as thymic carcinoids.

#2129 Phosphohistone H3 (PHH3) Immunohistochemical Staining Outperforms Conventional H&E Mitotic Count in Classifying Pulmonary Carcinoids
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PC) are well-differentiated NETs and are classified as typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Despite the fact that TC and AC exhibit significant differences in patient survival, their classification depends on relatively subtle differences in mitotic count (MC). Although careful counting of mitotic figures (MF) is essential, it is a very subjective task, time-consuming and lacks of sensitivity and interobserver reproducibility, due to selection bias of the hot spots, heterogeneous distribution of MF, difficulty in distinguishing MF from similar chromatin changes (i.e. in apoptotic cells or due to crush, karyorrhectic debris, pyknosis or apoptosis).
