Bizarre Neuroendocrine Tumour Presentations Abstract #1530

Introduction: Herein we present two cases of neuroendocrine tumours (NET)with atypical presentations.
Aim(s): .
Materials and methods: Case 1:A 87 year-old woman with a growing hypervascular cutaneous lesion in the left scapula was evaluated by Dermatology. The lesion was excised, and histopathology showed a NET metastasis. The patient had no carcinoid syndrome. An abdominal CT scan showed a nodular lesion in the proximal small intestine with exuberant desmoplastic reaction. Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy confirmed overexpression in this lesion and no evidence of distant metastasis. The patient underwent palliative surgery. The surgical specimen confirmed a low-grade (G1) NET (Ki67 1%).

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.

Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare aggressive cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma with a high rate of metastasis. Approximately 5% of MCC are found in the lymph nodes (LNs) without a primary tumor on the skin.
