From hormone dependent solid breast carcinoma to primary neuroendocrine carcinoma: a case report Abstract #103

Introduction: Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast is an extremely rare tumor with incidence of 0.27-0.5%.
Aim(s): To exclude possible neuroendocrine tumor in a 55-year-old female patient with disseminated malignant disease, six years after radical mastectomy due to small ER/PR positive ductal breast carcinoma without invaded lymph glands.
Materials and methods: We performed all the diagnostic procedures in the evaluation of the possible neuroendocrine tumor of the gastrointestinal tract with determination of the specific biochemical neuroendocrine markers and performed a revision of the primary histopathological analysis.

#51 Epidemiology of the neuroendocrine tumors diagnosed in Cardarelli Hospital: a retrospective single-institution analysis of 274 cases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are considered rare tumors and are characterized by their ability to produce peptides that cause typical hormonal syndromes. Neuroendocrine tumors consist of a wide spectrum of malignancies with different histology that can arise from distributed neuroendocrine cells in the body. Although these tumors are frequently indolent, they can be aggressive and resistant to therapy. Its incidence in the U.S.A has been rising in the last three decades (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry). NETs are more common than generally believed.

#80 Metastatic growth hormone secreting pituitary carcinoma treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy
Introduction: Pituitary carcinoma (PC) is an extremely rare condition defined by the presence of adenohypophyseal neoplastic tissue outside the pituitary. Clinical experience regarding diagnosis, management and prognosis of PC is very limited. Growth hormone (GH) secreting PC is even rarer and represents a particular challenge to clinical practice. Therapeutic modalities utilized to treat PC include surgery, radiation, hormonal therapy, and cytotoxic drugs. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) is an emerging therapeutic modality that involves the targeted delivery of an ablative dose of radiolabelled somatostatin analog. PRRT has been applied to various neuroendocrine tumors and results in prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life. As yet, this therapy has not been applied to malignant pituitary tumors.

#117 Synchronous appendiceal neuroendocrine carcinoma and mucinous cystadenocarcinoma: a case report
Introduction: Appendiceal tumors with histological features of both carcinoids and adenocarcinomas are very rare. Carcinomas of the appendix are usually mucinous adenocarcinomas with a tendency to produce peritoneal pseudomyxoma and without metastatic spread until late in the disease course. Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are a common incidental finding.
