Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) of the Gastrointestinal Tract. ARGENTUM Group Abstract #1159

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.
Aim(s): To evaluate the clinical and histopathological characteristics of MANECs.
Materials and methods: We review all cases of MANECs of database Argentum group. 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.

#715 Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Rectum: Experience in Argentina
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the rectum have been increasing in incidence. They are approximately 18% the all NETs and 27% of all gastrointestinal NETs. Rectal NETs are usually small and are often found incidentally during endoscopy. Patients (pts) with local disease have a favorable prognosis of a 5-year survival rate of 88-91%. Optimal treatment of NETs of the rectum has been widely debated.

#444 Gallium 68 DOTATATE PET CT Assessment of Patients (pts.) with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP NETs): First Experience in a Multidisciplinary Team in Argentina (Argentum Group)
Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT offers higher resolution than other scintigraphic techniques in terms of localization of the primary tumor and staging of GEP NETs. Different reports in the literature suggest increased sensitivity but clear consensus about indication in neuroendocrine tumors is unclear.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) G2 of the digestive tract are a heterogeneous group of tumors. Several treatment options including chemotherapy and target therapy are used, but there is a lack of prospective trials assessing the role of predictive factors in this population.
