Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia Abstract #867

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.
Aim(s): To elucidate the clinical and histopathological characteristics of MANECs and to compare them to classic Neuroendocrine Neoplasias (NEN).
Materials and methods: Patients with NEN treated at two tertiary institutions were included in this analysis. A prospectively maintained database for NEN was searched for MANEC. The MANEC diagnosis was confirmed by conventional histopathology on surgical specimen. Ki-67 analysis was done on paraffin-embedded sections using immunohistochemistry. Grading was according to ENETS recommendations.

#117 Synchronous appendiceal neuroendocrine carcinoma and mucinous cystadenocarcinoma: a case report
Introduction: Appendiceal tumors with histological features of both carcinoids and adenocarcinomas are very rare. Carcinomas of the appendix are usually mucinous adenocarcinomas with a tendency to produce peritoneal pseudomyxoma and without metastatic spread until late in the disease course. Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are a common incidental finding.

#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.
