Symptomatic Hypothalamic-Pituitary Metastases Disclosing Malignant Paraganglioma Abstract #2149

Introduction: A paraganglioma is a rare tumor composed of chromaffin cells. Malignant paraganglioma is a very rare presentation diagnosed by local recurrence after total resection of the primary mass or findings of distant metastasis. We report a case of a 34-year-old women with a Malignant paraganglioma presneting with visual loss and hypopituitarism resulting from metastasis to the pituitary area. The diagnosis of malignant paraganglioma was based on loco-regional and distant metastasis
Aim(s): Malignant paraganglioma is a very rare presentation diagnosed
Materials and methods: We report a case of a 34-year-old women with a Malignant paraganglioma presneting with hypertension and no pertinent family history and visual loss and hypopituitarism resulting from metastasis to the pituitary area. The diagnosis of malignant paraganglioma was based on loco-regional and distant metastasis

#2878 Surgical Management of Neuroendocrine Tumor-Associated Liver Metastases
Introduction: Liver metastasis is common among patients who suffer from neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Radical surgery is the standard treatment whenever possible but there is still controversies concerning the treatment strategies such as resection of the primary, role of debulking surgery, liver transplantation (LT) and neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapies.
