Introduction: The course of thymic- and bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine tumors (Th- and Bp-NET) in MEN-1 patients is still unclear.
Aim(s): To assess the prevalence, natural course and survival Th- and Bp-NET in an unselected MEN-1 population with long-term follow-up.
Materials and methods: A longitudinal study was performed using the Dutch national MEN-1 database, including 90% of the Dutch MEN-1 population. Patients >16 years, under the care of the Dutch University Medical Centers (1990-2010) (n=294) were included. Prevalence and survival of Th- and BpNET was assessed. Linear mixed models analysis was applied with gender, genotype and baseline tumor size as possible effect modifiers.
