Mediastinal Paraganglioma - A Challenge from the Surgical Point of View Abstract #2054

Introduction: Mediastinal paraganglima are extremely rare neuroendocrine tumors.
Aim(s): We present a patient with newly diagnosed mediastinal paraganglioma causing multiple problems.
Materials and methods: A 58-year-old male with an unremarkable past medical history presented with newly diagnosed atrial fibrilation. Chest X-ray and CT scan demonstrated a 7 cm vascularised mass in the middle and posterior mediastinum adjacent to the left atrium. Distal metastases were disclosed. We proceeded to mediastinoscopy with biopsy which was complicated by hemorrhage from the tumour. Histology showed paraganglioma.

#54 The clinical challenge of patients with a thoracic or neck neuroendocrine tumor: a retrospective analysis from a single Irish institution
Introduction: Thoracic and neck neuroendocrine tumors (T-N-NETs) represent a rare and intriguing condition and the management of patients with a NET localized at the thorax or neck can be extremely problematic. An expert and multidisciplinary approach is generally required for the optimal management of NET patients. A systematic multidisciplinary approach to NET patients has been recently established at our institution.

#590 Imaging of Metastatic-Recurrent Paragangliomas and Pheochromocytomas with Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT
Introduction: Approximately 73% of Pheochromocytomas(Pheo) and 93% of paragangliomas(PGL) express somatostatin receptors and Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT may have a role in metastatic PHEO/PGLs for determination of extent of disease.
