Hypoglycemias Appearing in a Patient Suffering from Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumor for Three Years. Abstract #1903

Introduction: Insulinomas are the most common functional PNENs and they have a weak malignant potential (<10%)
Aim(s): A 51-year-old woman was hospitalized for unconsciousness on hypoglycemia at home. This patient is known and currently treated for a poorly differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (Ki67 = 40%) with lymph nodes and liver metastases since march 2013.
Materials and methods: The neoplasm has begun in 2013, with an unknown primary lesion, inter-aorticocaves lymph nodes and liver metastases. The primary tumor appeared in the pancreas head one year later when disease progressed after multiple therapies including chemotherapy, radioembolization and radiation therapy, leading to complete remission for 2 years.

#2831 Immunohistochemical Profile of Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Retrospective Analysis in a Single Algerian Institution
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Noplasms (NEN) are rare tumours, but their incidence is clearly increasing in our country due to the improvement of diagnostic means, in particular the generalization of immunohistochemical techniques. The digestive location represents more than 70% of the cases. The anatomopathological study enables to classify the NEN in different prognostic grades according to the degree of differentiation, mitotic index and Ki67.
