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%).

Introduction: A 58-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for hepatic lesions and thickening of the walls of the stomach detected by abdominal CT scan. An upper GI endoscopy showed a lesion of the body of the stomach and the histopathologic exam documented a well differentiated NET. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET showed pathologic uptake in the stomach and in the liver (3 lesions). Circulating chromogranin A and gastrin were 596 ng/ml and 2283 pg/ml respectively

#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.
