Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Appendix in Pregnancy Abstract #995

Introduction: Despite the fact the appendix is one of the rarest anatomical locations of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in the digestive system, the appendicular neuroendocrine tumor (A-NET) remains one of the most common tumors of the appendix.
Aim(s): We present a well-documented case of A-NET of the appendix in a pregnant female in order to demonstrate a rare tumor in an unusual clinical setting.
Materials and methods: A 24-year-old female with progressive 2nd pregnancy of 35 weeks was admitted to the hospital due to dull pain in the epigastrium. Progressive pain in the lower part of the abdomen was established by the visit of a surgeon, a diarrhoea episode was also revealed, C-reactive protein level was progressively increased. The laboratory investigations demonstrated low haemoglobin level 117 g/L and increased white blood cell (WBC) count 12.9 x109/L. The indications for appendectomy were set up, and the operation was performed by the McBurney laparotomy approach.

#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.

#141 Incidence of second primary tumors in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Based on epidemiological data from SEER 1950-1999, 22.4% cases of non-carcinoid second primary tumors have been described in patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors. The incidence of this type of tumors varies, depending on the series assessed.

#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.

#1152 Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Tumor: Correlation Between Histopathological Factors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) of the appendix are rare histopathological neoplasm’s detected following operation for appendicitis. Clinical decisions focuses on different pathological factors for further management. With the aim of defining contemporary patterns of care in surgical practice, a critical review of the records is carried to establish a correlation between different histopathological parameters
