#419 Morphological Characteristics of Pancreatic Tumors in Children and Young Patients
Introduction: Pancreatic tumors (PT) usually occur after age 60 and almost never in children and young patients (pts). Little is known concerning frequency, morphological and immunohistochemical (IHC) characteristics of PTs in children and young pts.

#1327 Is Screening of Young Asymptomatic MEN1 Patients Necessary?
Introduction: Recent clinical practice guidelines recommend that routine screening of MEN1 mutation carriers should start at the age of 5 years to detect MEN1-associated tumors which is controversial in the scientific community.

#2025 Health-Related Quality of Life Determinants in Swedish Patients after Surgery for Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Overall survival for patients with small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (siNETs) is often long even with metastatic disease, making quality of life issues especially relevant. The impact of surgery on their quality of life is unknown.

#1704 Diffusion Weighted Imaging as a Screening Tool in the Detection and Monitoring of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours in Patients with Familial Cancer Syndromes.
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs) occur at a higher frequency and at a younger age in patients with certain genetic conditions e.g. Von Hippel Lindau and Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1. Screening for early detection and monitoring growth rates of PNETs in these high risk patients is vital in their management. MRI has emerged as the gold standard for imaging the pancreas for the detection of PNETs and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) has become an invaluable adjunct.

#2713 The Economic Impact to Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: The quality of life impact on patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) and the economic burden on health systems are substantial. However, little is known about the economic burden to individual patients and families for medical out-of-pocket expenses and employment decisions.

#273 The Succinate Dehydrogenase Genetic Testing in Patients with Extra-adrenal Paragangliomas: The Portuguese Cancer Center (Lisboa) Experience
Introduction: Extra-adrenal paragangliomas (PGLs) occur as sporadic or familial entities, the latter mostly in association with germline mutations of the SDHB, SDHC or SDHD genes.

#677 Care of NET Patients at the Skåne University Hospital-Lund University, Sweden: A Model for the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of NET
Introduction: The varied and nonspecific symptoms of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) often delay diagnosis until the disease has progressed. Input from various medical specialties can improve access to and delivery of care.
