Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Upper Urinary Tract: A Case Report Abstract #2716

Introduction: There are no dedicated guidelines for treatment of urothelial NEC given disease rarity. An aggressive approach, including neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy + nephroureterectomy and adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy, is recommended.
Aim(s): We present the management of a patient with urothelial NEC.
Materials and methods: A 74-years-old female presented with weight loss and abdominal pain. CT scan showed a voluminous lesion close to the IVC, the duodenum and the right kidney with hydronephrosis; the lesion was closed to the right psoas muscle, the right common and external iliac arteries. A 18-FDG-PET scan showed intense uptake in the right para-renal region, whilst the PET-Gallium-68 was negative.

#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.

#144 Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy in patients with advanced neuroendocrine carcinoma: an Italian retrospective multicenter analysis
Introduction: Conventional chemotherapy does not have a well-defined role in well/moderately differentiated (WD) neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Various regimens were evaluated. Cisplatin or carboplatin combined with etoposide are usually indicated in poorly differentiated (PD) NECs. Some evidence exists for oxaliplatin activity in WD and PD NECs, combined with capecitabine or gemcitabine.
