Co-existing Type-1 Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) and Adenocarcinoma in Autoimmune Associated Atrophic Gastritis Abstract #407

Introduction: Autoimmune gastritis (AIG) causes oxyntic gland atrophy. This condition is often associated with Type-1 gastric NET secondary to achlorhydria and hypergastrinemia. Similar to atrophic gastritis in non-autoimmune conditions, AIG is associated with intestinal metaplasia that could progress to glandular dysplasia.
Aim(s): To delineate the relationship between neuroendocrine cell and glandular epithelium neoplasia.
Materials and methods: We identified 12 cases of AIG with co-existing neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia/NET and glandular neoplasia/adenocarcinoma and characterized pathologic features of both neoplastic processes.

#622 Evaluation of Mucin and Neuroendocrine Expression in Diffuse Gastric Cancer with Signet Ring Cell Morphology
Introduction: A proportion of diffuse gastric carcinoma, according to the Lauren classification system, has signet ring cell morphology. Signet ring cells are characterized by a peripherally placed nucleus and a central amorphous substance, which is reported to be mucin based on Periodic Acid Schiff positivity (PAS). PAS is not a specific staining method for mucin. Neuroendocrine expression has previously been reported in tumor cells in diffuse type gastric cancer.

Introduction: Recent advances in specific treatment for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) prompted us to reinvestigate the old phenomenon of neuroendocrine differentiation in carcinomas of the GI tract which has previously been shown to carry no prognostic significance.
