#633 Clinical and Prognostic Features of Neuroendocrine Tumor of Unknown Primary Site
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of unknown primary site (NET UPS) are rare and heterogenous tumors with poor prognosis. There is little information available on the treatment and prognosis.

#1285 Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary Site: Report from a Series at a Single Institute
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms of unknown primary (NENs-UP) account for 10-13% of all NENs and show different biologic behavior, histologic appearance and clinical outcome.

#684 Clinical Characteristics and Survival of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary
Introduction: NETs of unknown primary account for 10-15% of NETs. There is limited published literature on this group of NETs.

#681 The Use of Capsule Endoscopy for Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary Tumor Location
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients suspected to have small bowel (SB) tumors. SB accounts for the primary tumor site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the primary tumor site remains obscure.

#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.

#2206 Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor with Unknown Primary Site Presenting Simultaneously with Prostate Adenocarcinoma
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) arise from a variety of different organs and have a steadily increasing incidence in the last 3 decades. 13% of NETs have unknown primary sites.

#857 Video Capsule Endoscopy as a Tool to Detect Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that video capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients with suspected small bowel tumors. Small bowel is the primary site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the localization of the primary tumors remains obscure.

#167 Localization of Sporadic Neuroendocrine Tumors by Gene expression Analysis of Their Metastases
Introduction: Primary neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare and often difficult to detect, leading to diagnosis late in their development. Cases in which the primary cannot be located are denoted as CUP-Syndrome.

#1237 Risk Factors for Survival from Neuroendocrine Neoplasia with Unknown Primary Tumor Site
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasia (NEN) with unknown primary site (NEN-CUP) may have a poor prognosis. We evaluated the clinical presentation, therapy, outcome, and risk factors for adverse outcomes in patients with NEN-CUP.

#1399 High Grade Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET). Instituto Oncologico Nacional. Panama City, Panama. 2004-2015
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are relatively rare and complex neoplasms that present many clinical challenges. High grade at diagnosis is an adverse prognostic factor
