PRRT for Malignant Pheochromocytomas and Paragangliomas: The Singapore General Hospital Experience Abstract #1305

Introduction: In recent years, the use of 177Lu-DOTATATE radioisotope therapy has been expanded to patients with metastatic pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PCC/PGL). Although this is not the standard of care, treatment options are limited for those with MIBG negative disease. Our centre has treated over 40 patients with NETS with PRRT since 2012.
Aim(s): We share our clinical experience of PRRT in 4 patients with functional metastatic PCC/PGL.
Materials and methods: Three PGL patients and 1 PCC patient have undergone PRRT since 2014.

#2894 Single Institution Experience with Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a rare and heterogenous group of tumors with rising incidence. Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) with radiolabeled somatostatin analogue is an encouraging systemic treatment modality with minimum side effects.

#2890 Evaluation of Toxicity in Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) for Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is an encouraging systemic treatment for neuroendocrine tumors (NET). PRRT is generally safe and possesses little side effects but little is known about liver toxicity.

#2823 Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) arising from the rectum are more common in the Asian population. Current treatment options include somatostatin analogues, chemotherapy, and more recently, peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of advanced gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) tumours with minimal adverse effects. Studies have also suggested that rectal NETs show good response to PRRT, better than GEP NETs.

#22 A Case Illustrative of Phenotypic Heterogeneity and Challenges in the Management of Paraganglioma
Introduction: Paragangliomas (PGLs) are extra-adrenal, usually benign, highly vascularized tumors that originate from neural-crest-derived chromaffin cells. These tumors are subdivided as either sympathetic or parasympathetic, depending on their location and catecholamine production. Sympathetic PGLs are situated along the abdominal sympathetic trunk and usually produce catecholamines, whereas parasympathetic PGLs are located in the head and neck, and these usually do not produce catecholamines. PGLs may present as sporadic or inherited tumor syndrome, including MEN 2, with RET germline mutations, von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease due to germline mutations in VHL gene, and pheochromocytoma-PGL syndrome. The latter is frequently a hereditary condition and is caused by germline mutations in the SDHB, SDHC, or SDHC genes. Patients with familial PGLs may present at a younger age, often as multifocal tumors, with an increased risk of recurrence and a higher frequency of malignancy in those with SDHB mutations. SDH mutations induce angiogenesis and tumorogenesis through the inhibition of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIF)-propyl hyroxylase. A younger age at onset, malignancy, and a positive family history are clinical parameters of high specificity, but low sensitivity for diagnosis. Genetic analysis for mutations in SDH genes for the patient and family members, and surveillance for the affected patient and family members, are necessary where there are no clear clinical or family indicators for the syndrome. We present a case of a large abdominal malignant PGL in a 20-year-old pt. that went on without clinical detection for at least three years.
