Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of the Prostate Abstract #1243

Introduction: Since focal neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation in prostate carcinomas represents a frequent phenomenon when NE markers are used for documentation, NE carcinomas are extremely rare form of highly aggressive prostate tumors.
Aim(s): This paper presents all cases of NE prostate carcinomas diagnosed in a Pathology Service from the western part of Romania.
Materials and methods: All the NE carcinomas of the prostate confirmed by immunohistochemistry in a period of 10 years were identified.

#2259 Clinical Characteristics, Treatment Outcomes and Potential Novel Therapeutic Options for Patients with Prostatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma
Introduction: Prostatic neuroendocrine carcinomas (PNECs) are rare tumors with poor prognosis. While platinum and etoposide based chemotherapy regimens (PE) are commonly applied in first-line for advanced disease, clinical-grade evidence for treatment options in second-line and beyond is very limited.

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

#1168 Simultaneous Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma and Adenocarcinoma of the Stomach: A Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the stomach is rare. Gastric NEC occasionally has another component, such as adenocarcinoma, in the same tumor. However, the concurrent occurrence of LCNEC and adenocarcinoma at different sites in the stomach is extremely rare.

#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.
