Lung Carcinoid: Role of NSE and Imaging Techniques in Long-Term Follow-Up of Malignancy Recurrence Abstract #1650

Introduction: Typical and atypical Lung Carcinoids (LC) are rare neuroendocrine tumors usually characterized by good prognosis. Malignancy recurrence (MR) is uncommon but may occur even after several years; a close long-term follow-up is required.
Aim(s): Since no commonly accepted clinical guidelines on long-term follow-up are available so far, the aim of this study is to evaluate the post-surgical follow-up and the progression-free survival (PFS) of LC, in order to better elucidate the indication for imaging and/or biochemical marker (BM) screening.
Materials and methods: Clinical data of 37 patients diagnosed with LC from 1986 to 2015 were collected and compared through a database. We focused our attention on Neuron Specific Enolase (NSE) assessment and on imaging techniques (chest X-Ray and chest-CT).

Introduction: Pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids are widely considered indolent, although they can metastasize even with a very long relapse free interval. No standard follow-up strategy exists after a radical resection.
