Intrapancreatic Accessory Spleen (IPAS) Misdiagnosed as Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (PNET): A Case Report and Characterization of a Syndrome Based on Systematic Review of the Literature Abstract #511

Introduction: Management of pancreatic incidentalomas(PI) is challenging due to high risk of malignancy and limitations in prediction of their histology and biological behavior. IPAS is one of such lesions and is often misdiagnosed as a PNET.
Aim(s): Case: A 65-year-old male presented with PI of 1.6, 1.3 cm suspected for IPAS on CT but finally misdiagnosed as a nonfunctioning PNET. Post-surgical histopathology identified lesions as IPAS.
Materials and methods: Literature review.

#713 Non-Functioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNET): Association with Prediabetes/Diabetes
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of pancreas (PNET) are classified as functional or nonfunctional (NF) based on presence or absence of clinical syndrome associated with hormone over secretion. NF-PNETs do, however, often produce low levels of inactive hormones (pancreatic polypeptide, calcitonin or neurotensin) which do not cause any symptoms.
