Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumors Secreting Calcitonin Abstract #1472

Introduction: Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumors (NPT) secreting calcitonin are rare.
Aim(s): We reviewed our experience in NPT from January 1999 to December 2012 to identify clinical presentation and prognosis of NPT secreting calcitonin.
Materials and methods: Among all the patients presenting with a NPT, we enrolled who had an increased serum calcitonin level (n.v. 0-10 ng/L). Follow up to December 2014.

We report five cases of NPT associated with other rare mesenchimal neoplasms of the GI tract, observed in our Department from 2003 to 2011.
