Paragangliomas: a series of five cases Abstract #145

Introduction: Paraganglioma is a rare extraadrenal neuroendocrine tumor, composed of chromaffin cells and arising from the neural crest. The head, neck, and retroperitoneum are the most common sites for paraganglioma.
Aim(s): We present five different phenotypes of paraganglioma.
Materials and methods: A series of five patients (4 females/1 male), aged between 22 and 51 years. were diagnosed with paragangliomas, based on histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry performed after surgery. A clinical, biological and pathological analysis of the cases was performed.

#56 Somatostatinreceptor scintigraphy with Tc-99m-tektrotyd in patients with neuroendocrine tumors: correlation with immunohistochemistry
Introduction: Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (STRS) with Tc-99m-tektrotyd has been used in the past few years for diagnosis and staging of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). A number of clinicopathologic criteria proved to be useful predictors of malignant behavior of these tumors. Immunohistochemical markers for NETs include cell proliferation (Ki-67 index) and neuroendocrine markers such as chromogranin A (CgA) and synaptophysin.
