Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Appendix: Characterization of 251 Patients Referred to the Copenhagen NET Centre of Excellence Abstract #2140

Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) of the appendix occur with an incidence of 0.15–0.6/100,000/year
Aim(s): To characterize a cohort of 251 appendiceal NEN and to evaluate the risk of relapse.
Materials and methods: Prospective collection of data from 251 patients referred to Rigshospitalet 2000-2017, Goblet cell tumors excluded. Follow-up was possible by the patient’s security number and the Danish National Pathology Data Registry. No patients were lost to follow-up.
