Incidence and Outcome of Brain Metastasis in Patients Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Abstract #2763

Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system.
Aim(s): We aim to analyse the frequency, origin, treatment and outcome of brain metastases in patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumor and NEC of non-lung origin.
Materials and methods: A retrospective study was conducted and 48 patients diagnosed with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm and bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine tumor were included in the study. Univariate and multivariate analysis was performed using Cox Proportional Hazards Regression.

#2050 Finding the Ways to Determine the Prognosis of Pulmonary Carcinoids with Certain Genes/Markers in Pakistan
Introduction: Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors are classified into four subtypes from well differentiated to poorly differentiated high grade large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas. Because of the difficult histological classification and a cancer free period following surgery, it is often difficult to predict certain prognostic factors.
