Ectopic hormone secreting phaeochromocytoma: A francophone observational study Abstract #125

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.
Aim(s): We wanted to test these hypotheses and shed light on the nature of ectopic hormone-secreting phaeochromocytomas.
Materials and methods: This is a multi-center (francophone) observational study. Inclusion was based upon abnormal pre-operative hormone tests in patients with phaeochromocytoma that normalized after removal of the tumor. Where possible, immunohistochemistry was performed to confirm that secretion came from the tumor.

#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.

#1426 Pseudotumor of Thymus Occuring After Hypercortisolism Recovery: Case Report
Introduction: Cushing syndrome is due to an ectopic secreting adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in 10 % to 20% of cases. Among them, thymic tumors represent almost half of cases. It has been described that patients sometimes develop benign hyperplasia after hypercortisolism correction.

#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.
