Sporadic Panglandular Non-Functioning pNET: New Entities? A Case Series Abstract #1834

Introduction: Sporadic panglandular pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) have never been described yet.
Aim(s): To report pathological features of sporadic PanNETs with involvement of the entire pancreatic gland.
Materials and methods: The Institutional database of resected PanNET from 2006 to 2016 was investigated and three cases were retrieved. Clinical data were acquired and histological slides were revised. MEN-1 cases were excluded.

#3048 Somatostatin Analogs or Active Surveillance in Sporadic Non-Functioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Non-functioning (NF), sporadic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) have usually an indolent behavior, but sometimes show an unpredictable aggressiveness. Surgery is the first-choice for localized tumors >2 cm. Unresectable or metastatic lesions expressing somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) are treated with Somatostatin analogs (SSAs). No evidence of SSAs efficacy exists in tumors ≤2 cm, for which active surveillance has been proposed.

#1832 Are Cystic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors an Indolent Entity? Results for a Single Institutional Surgical Series
Introduction: Cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (CPanNET) are an uncommon variant of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs). Due to their rarity, there is a lack of knowledge with regards to clinical features and prognosis.

#3062 The Splicing Factor CELF4 Is Dysregulated in Neuroendocrine Tumors, Where It Can Enhance Aggressiveness Features
Introduction: There is increasing evidence that alterations in alternative splicing are linked to key tumor features in different cancers. Besides mutations, dysregulation of the splicing machinery would represent the main underlying cause for these alterations. Indeed, splicing dysregulation is emerging as a novel, transversal cancer hallmark, due to its association with multiple dysfunctions in tumor cells.
