Difficulties in Differential Diagnostics of Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #248

Introduction: Primary neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of soft tissues and soft tissue metastases are seen rarely and need differentiation from other types of tumors (as chemodecroma or paraganglioma).
Aim(s): We observed a rare case of NET tumor of the cervical region which was falsely diagnosed as chemodectoma (paraganglioma).
Materials and methods: The 59-year-old woman was followed-up in another clinic for 17 years with a diagnosis of nonresectable chemodectoma in the right cervical region. She was referred to our center in 2009 and by CT the cervical soft tissues lesion and multiply pulmonary lesions were revealed. Tumor enucleation in SIII and cervical lesion biopsy were performed.

#2987 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT as Tool for Diagnosis and Decision-Making Process of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Primary tumors in some patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) cannot be found by conventional imaging as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT (68Ga-PET) appears to have superior sensitivity, specifity, and better resolution than 99mTC-octreotide SPECT/TC (SSTR scintigraphy) and can improve decision-making process, however its cost is higher, and its availability is limited.
