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.

#2176 New MENIN Mutation Associated with Familial Isolated Hyperparathyroidism. Clinical Case of Three Young Sisters.
Introduction: The primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a sporadic disorder in the majority of cases, and only 5-10% of cases are associated with familial syndromes. The following familial syndromes associated with PHPT are known to date: multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), type 2A (MEN2A), type 4 (MEN4), hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor syndrome (HPT-JT), familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH), neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT) and familial isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP). FIHP is defined as hereditary PHPT without the association with other diseases or tumors and may be caused by mutations in MEN1, HRPT2, or CASR genes.
