Clinical and Pathologic Characteristics of Small Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Bladder Abstract #1176

Introduction: Small cell carcinoma of the bladder (SCC) is a poorly differentiated neuroendocrine (NE) neoplasm accounting less than 1% of all bladder tumors, 1/3 are admixed with conventional urothelial carcinoma and hematuria is the most common clinical presentation. The unknown etiology and natural history of SCC represent a challenge for its diagnosis and treatment.
Aim(s): Study the clinical and pathologic characteristics of SCC of the urinary bladder.
Materials and methods: Clinicopathological data from 12 cases of pure or mixed SCC diagnosed in our center with immunohistochemical stains (IHC) to confirm NE differentiation.

#720 Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Gallbladder: Case Report and Review of Literature
Introduction: Small-cell carcinomas arising in the gallbladder are extremely rare and aggressive tumors, which metastasize early, and have very poor prognosis. This histologic type of gallbladder carcinoma is more common in women than in men, usually coexists with lithiasis, and has a highly aggressive clinical behavior.

#1115 Cancer Stem Cells in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Cell Line P-STS: Isolation and Molecular Characterisation
Introduction: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a small subpopulation of tumour cells responsible for invasive tumour growth. Even though the presence of CSCs in neuroendocrine tumours is documented, their role in neuroendocrine tumourigenesis and metastasis is not defined as yet.

#939 Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Gallbladder: A Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Primary large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the gallbladder is rare. The standard treatment for gallbladder NEC with liver metastases has not been established, but combination chemotherapy with etoposide plus cisplatin (EP) is recommended for NEC patients with liver metastasis, regardless of the primary tumor site.

#1653 Expression and Clinical Significance of Somatostatin Receptor Subtype 2A in Small Cell Lung Carcinoma
Introduction: Somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) play a key role in the regulation of cell proliferation and have been identified in a proportion of aggressive poorly differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms, including small cell lung carcinomas (SCLCs).
