Early Prognostic Factors in Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma Abstract #2201

Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) prognosis has been related with several variables, being calcitonin doubling time one of the most important prognostic factor. However, it is not evaluable in the early postoperative period.
Aim(s): The aim of this study was to analyze early postoperative variables related with disease-specific mortality (DSM) due to MTC.
Materials and methods: Retrospective review of surgically removed MTC from 1996 to 2015. We performed a univariate analysis of factors related to DSM.

#2813 Clinical Presentation and Prognosis of Patients with Medullary Thyroid Cancer
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a rare type of tumor that originates from parafollicular C-cells and accounts for 3–4% of all malignant thyroid neoplasms. MTC presents as sporadic (75–80%) or inherited tumors (20–25%). Hereditary MTC is part of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2).

#3074 Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma and DIPNECH: An Unexpected Association
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a neuroendocrine tumour of the C-cells of thyroid gland. Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cells hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare condition, thought to be primarily a neuroendocrine proliferative process which can develop into carcinoid tumours.
