Brain Metastases in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients: Frequency and Outcome Abstract #825

Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system. Symptomatic brain metastases are associated with dismal prognosis, so early detection and treatment could be advisable.
Aim(s): To analyze frequency, origin, treatment and outcome of brain metastases in a single centre cohort of NET and non-lung NEC patients.
Materials and methods: In 1998, we established a database for patients with NETs and NECs of gastroenteropancreatic or unknown origin. We searched this clinical database for all patients with documented brain metastases.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.
