Extrapulmonary Small Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Colon in an 18-Year-Old Girl Abstract #855

Introduction: Extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma (EPSCC) is a very rare aggressive malignant tumor typical for older age. Prognosis of EPSCC remains very poor, with three years OS 38% and five years OS less than 13%. The median survival for GI localised EPSCC is only five months. Initial extent of disease is the most sensitive prognostic factor.
Aim(s): Case study of a very rare tumor with extremely agressive behavior in an unusually young patient.
Materials and methods: Eighteen-year-old girl with one week history of abdominal pain was admitted to the hospital with acute hepato-renal failure and severe hypercalcaemia. US/MRI showed extreme hepatomegaly and multiple small nodules in liver parenchyma. Within 48 hours she suddenly developed hemorrhagic shock with intrabdominal bleeding. Laparotomy revealed spontaneous rupture of the right liver lobe. Days after surgery there were complications, including multiple organ failure and coagulopathy. Despite intensive care, the girl died only 20 days after the first symptoms occur.

#652 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms in Childhood and Adolescents
Introduction: NEN are very rare tumors in children and adolescents with predominance in adolescent girls. The annual incidence is about 1.14:1 million. The most frequent localization is appendix. Bronchial NEN, even extremly rare, is the most frequent primary epithelial lung tumor in children.

#634 Merkel Cell Carcinoma in a Nine-Year-Old Girl
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) of the skin is a rare neuroendocrine tumor characterized by its rapid growth and aggressive clinical behavior. MCC is a typical tumor of older age (average age is 65 years). In children and adolescents less than 20 years of age, it is extremely rare. Information regarding MCC in childhood can be found in the literature only in the form of individual case reports. Due to the rarity of MCC in the young population, any clinical studies or treatment recommendations in these patients are missing.

#944 Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma in Pediatric Age
Introduction: Pheochromocytoma (PHE) and paraganglioma (PGL) are rare tumors of the adrenal medulla and extra-adrenal sympathetic chromaffin tissue. Nearly 30% of them are familiar or associated with genetic syndromes (VHL, MEN2, NF1, SDH mutation, Pacak-Zhuang). Only 20% PHE occur before 20 years of age. Incidence of pediatric PHE is 0.3:1 million.
