Epidemiological Features of Patients with NeuroEndocrine Neoplasms (NENs): Preliminary Results of an Observational Study by the Hellenic Society of Medical Oncology (HeSMO) Abstract #3057

Introduction: NENs are rare tumors and can grow in almost all tissues. Regardless histological, molecular and imaging characteristics that are indicative of the primary origin, a significant percentage remain of unknown primary.
Aim(s): A prospective observational study was conducted by HeSMO in Oncology Departments to register patients with histologically confirmed NEN.
Materials and methods: Inclusion criteria were: a) residency in Greece, b) treatment by medical Oncologist in Greece, c) Age > 14 years and d) signed informed consent.

#2743 Mimics of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Identified in a Single Consultation Center between 2009 and 2019
Introduction: Immunohistochemical expression of synaptophysin (SYN), chromogranin (CgA) and cytokeratin are essential for diagnosis of NENs. Non-NENs, however, may occasionally also express NE-markers and cytokeratin and cause diagnostic difficulties.
