MANECs Among Colorectal Signet Ring Cell Carcinomas Abstract #558

Introduction: The mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (MANEC, WHO 2010) are neoplasms with heterogeneous morphology, whose mixed nature may be difficult to recognize.
Aim(s): To increase the awareness of MANECs in colorectal carcinomas with signet-ring cell morphology.
Materials and methods: A series of four colorectal carcinomas with signet ring cell component (SRCC) in organoid pattern were studied for neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation. The cases were immunolabeled with antibodies to synaptophysin, Ki-67, p53, glucagon, serotonin, pancreatic-polypeptide (PP), SSTR2, Muc1, Muc2, Muc5a, CDX2, CK20, CK7, CK5/6, E-cadherin and ß-catenin. Clinical data are presented.

#622 Evaluation of Mucin and Neuroendocrine Expression in Diffuse Gastric Cancer with Signet Ring Cell Morphology
Introduction: A proportion of diffuse gastric carcinoma, according to the Lauren classification system, has signet ring cell morphology. Signet ring cells are characterized by a peripherally placed nucleus and a central amorphous substance, which is reported to be mucin based on Periodic Acid Schiff positivity (PAS). PAS is not a specific staining method for mucin. Neuroendocrine expression has previously been reported in tumor cells in diffuse type gastric cancer.

#685 A Small Mixed Adenocarcinoma and Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Duodenum with Multiple Liver Metastases
Introduction: Mixed adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine cancers (MANECs) are rare specific type of tumors that are composed of two histologic components: a neuroendocrine carcinoma and an adenocarcinoma. There are only a few reports regarding MANEC of the stomach, colon and rectum in the literature.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.

#1159 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) of the Gastrointestinal Tract. ARGENTUM Group
Introduction: Mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract are rare neoplasms. In the 2000 WHO classification of endocrine tumors, such neoplasms were defined as mixed exocrine-endocrine tumors when each component represents at least 30% of the lesion. In the most recent WHO classification, such neoplasms are called “mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas” (MANECs). They are a challenge for the diagnostic and treatment.
