Outcome of Malignant Insulinomas (MI) in the Community Setting Abstract #950

Introduction: MI is a rare and difficult to handle functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor with a variety of therapeutic alternatives.
Aim(s): To analyze the characteristics and multidisciplinary management of MI.
Materials and methods: Seventeen patients (pts) with MI attended in seven Spanish University Hospitals between 1995 and 2013 were analyzed.

#1160 Exclusive Hotspot Mutation of YY1 Gene in Insulinomas and Extensive Mutation of DAXX in PNETs
Introduction: Somatic mutation of YY1 was shown in sporadic insulinoma, the main type of functional PNET. DAXX mutation occurred mainly in NF-PNET. However, YY1 and DAXX mutations in non-insulinomas and insulinomas, respectively, have not been well elucidated.
