Cowden Syndrome and Concomitant Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Presentation of Two Cases Abstract #1167

Introduction: Cowden Syndrome is a multiorgan disorder with germline mutations in the tumor suppressor gene PTEN leading to dysfunctional cell growth and risk of neoplasms in e.g. breast and thyroid, but no association with NET has been described.
Aim(s): To present two cases.
Materials and methods: Two patients with Cowden Syndrome and pulmonary NET are presented.

#1883 Utility of a Circulating NET mRNA Gene Signature for Defining Bronchopulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasia and Evaluating Disease Progression
Introduction: Bronchopulmonary NETs (BPNETs) exhibit indolent to aggressive behavior. Imaging, histology and biochemistry are limited in accurately defining malignancy or progression. A blood based NET multigene test is effective in diagnosing GEP-NET progression and therapy response.

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

Introduction: Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) syndrome has an autosomal dominant transmission. Combination of tumors: parathyroid, pituitary and pancreatico-duodenal (PD) NETs. PD NETs in MEN1 syndrome show propensity for malignant degeneration.

#858 Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Ectopic Cushing Syndrome: Could Everolimus Be a Safe Therapeutic Option?
Introduction: Everolimus(E) has proved effective in prolonging PFS in advanced P-NETs. As E is a substrate of CYP3A4 co-administration with ketoconazole (k), a strong inhibitor of CYP3A4 used to control hypercortisolism, should be avoided.

#1039 Receptor Tyrosine-Kinases Inhibition: New Insights on Therapeutic Implications of EGFR and IGF1R in Human Bronchopulmonary NET
Introduction: The main treatment for bronchopulmonary NET(BP-NET) is surgery, which is not feasible for infiltrating and metastatic disease, where medical therapy is tried. Identifying new therapeutic targets is important to provide adequate medical treatment for patients with BP-NET. Sunitinib, a multi-targeted receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), is mainly described to inhibit VEGF
