Goblet Cell Carcinoid Tumors - A Retrospective Study of Clinical Presentation and Survival Abstract #308

Introduction: Goblet cell carcinoids (GCC) are rare mixed tumors, with partial neuroendocrine differentiation and intestinal-type goblet cell morphology. They usually have a highly malignant potential.
Aim(s): To study the clinical presentation, imaging, histology, and treatment with focus on prognosis and survival.
Materials and methods: A retrospective study from 1989-2009 including 25 patients (14 females, 11 males, median age 52 years (range 31-73)), referred to the Department of Medicine V, Aarhus University Hospital. Clinical, biochemical, and radiological data were obtained from patient files. Survival was studied by Kaplan-Meyer analysis.

#737 Impact of Ki-67 Proliferative Index on Survival in Patients with Typical and Atypical Pulmonary Carcinoids
Introduction: Currently pulmonary carcinoids are separated into typical and atypical tumors based on mitotic count and presence of necrosis, according to the WHO classification. Whereas for GEP NETs the ENETS Guidelines have been incorporated into the WHO classification and grading is based on mitotic counts and Ki-67 index, the use of the Ki-67 index for grading pulmonary carcinoids is still under debate.
