Sunitinib May Be an Effective Treatment for Hypercalcemia Due To a Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Abstract #2949

Introduction: Malignant hypercalcemia due to neuroendocrine tumor(NET) is rare, and only a few reports are available in the literature.
Aim(s): We present a case of hypercalcemia due to a metastatic pancreatic NET treated with sunitinib.
Materials and methods: A 65-year-old man was found to have multiple tumors in the liver, spleen and pancreas accidentally in 2011. Considering the tumors unresectable he decided to adopt Chinese herbs treatment, and he has had stable disease until 2014. On June 2014, the patient suddenly developed hypercalcemia(5.2mmol/L) with dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Abdominal contrast-enhanced CT scan showed the lesions were larger than before. The histology of the spleen lesion showed a well-differentiated NET (Ki-67 5%). His calcium level gradually decreased to normal after treated with octreotide LAR. However a few months later the patient developed hypercalcemia (3.71mmol/L) again. Further examination revealed no signs of parathyroid diseases or bone metastases. Then the patient was prescribed sunitinib 37.5mg per day.

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare malignancies, Ki-67 is a cell proliferation marker that has been shown to have some utility in predicting prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors. However, the ideal grading method for G1/G2 remains controversial.

#2781 Case Report: Whole Exon Sequencing of Primary Lesion and Metastatic Liver Lesion in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms(NENs) are classified into neuroendocrine tumors (NET) G1, G2, G3, and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), which are different pathogenesis. The two kinds of tumors that occurs in the same lesion in one patient is very rare. We found high grade neuroendocrine neoplasms(NENG3) with a diameter of 0.1 cm in a patient with a pancreatic NETG2 (1.7 cm in diameter). The cells were significant atypia with Ki67 index of 60%, focal necrosis, while metastatic nodules in the liver (12, 0.1-1.1 cm in diameter) were all high grade NENG3.
