#1206 Two Cases of Ectopic ACTH-Secreting Neoplasm of Occult Origin Becoming Overt After Bilateral Adrenalectomy
Introduction: Cushing's syndrome (CS) is an endocrine disorder associated with serious consequences if not adequately treated. Nearly 80% of the cases of endogenous hypercortisolism are adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) dependent, the ACTH source being pituitary in about 70-80% and ectopic in 10-15%. The ACTH source may remain occult in few cases for many years in spite of extensive investigations.

Introduction: Ectopic hormone-secreting phaeochromocytomas are rare and only small reports of 1-2 cases exist in the literature. In the past, this condition has been linked with increased malignancy, familial syndromes and ACTH secretion.

#2233 Potential Effects of Ketoconazole on ACTH-Producing and Non-ACTH-Producing Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Prolonged biochemical remission after treatment with steroidogenesis inhibitors has been described in patients with Cushing’s syndrome due to ectopic adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) production. Some studies have suggested antiproliferative and apoptotic effect of ketoconazole in human cancer cells.

#467 Thoracic and Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) and Ectopic Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) Syndrome (EAS)
Introduction: Ectopic Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) Syndrome (EAS) is associated with a variety of malignancies, mostly of neuroendocrine origin. Several series report on the relative contribution of EAS in the spectrum of Cushing’s syndrome. However, information on the incidence/prevalence of EAS in the setting of patients diagnosed with thoracic or gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is virtually absent.
