Primary Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Parathyroid Abstract #463

Introduction: Parathyroids are derived from third and fourth branchial pouches and neuroendocrine C-cells originate for neighboring fifth branchial pouch. A close ontogenic relation between these embryonal pouches is illustrated in DiGeorge syndrome wherein there is an absence of parathyroid glands and C-cells. It is not known for certain if normal parathyroids contain NE cells. However, NETs of the parathyroid have been reported in two other cases (Medline search: 1966-2011).
Aim(s): We report a third case along with treatment given and follow-up course.
Materials and methods: A 61-year-old woman presented with respiratory distress. She had outside surgery for an 8 cm "parathyroid tumor," adherent to strap muscles and trachea. Our Investigations: Serial serum Ca++,PTH, Vitamin D, ALKptase, albumin. Histopathology, immunostains, US/CT Neck, CT Chest, PET-CT, Bone scan.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.

#2156 Two Cases Synchronous Atypical Parathyroid Adenomas and Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: A literature review revealed a prevalence of approximately 3% of nonmedullary thyroid cancer, which was found in patients operated on for primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Papillary thyroid carcinomas(PTC) is a malignant epithelial tumour. PTC represent up to 87% of all thyroid carcinomas. Atypical parathyroid adenoma(APA) are a subset of parathyroid neoplasms that exhibit some of the features of parathyroid carcinoma but lack unequivocal invasive growth. APA represents about 0,5-4% of cases of pHPT. As a group, they may be considered tumors of uncertain malignant potential.

#1267 Two Cases of Parathyroid Cancer with Pulmonary Metastasis
Introduction: Parathyroid cancer(PC) is a rare disease accounting for less then 1% of all patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. The prognosis of patients with parathyroid carcinoma is variable; more than 50% have a persistent or recurrent disease due to a regional or distant disease.
