Mimics of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Identified in a Single Consultation Center between 2009 and 2019 Abstract #2743

Introduction: Immunohistochemical expression of synaptophysin (SYN), chromogranin (CgA) and cytokeratin are essential for diagnosis of NENs. Non-NENs, however, may occasionally also express NE-markers and cytokeratin and cause diagnostic difficulties.
Aim(s): To identify non-NENs that morphologically, immunohistochemically and biologically mimic NENs.
Materials and methods: We reviewed 1676 neoplasms from our consultation archive, expressing at least one NE-marker. In cases with no straightforward diagnosis, the tumors were also screened for various NE-unrelated markers.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.
