Synchronous appendiceal neuroendocrine carcinoma and mucinous cystadenocarcinoma: a case report Abstract #117

Introduction: Appendiceal tumors with histological features of both carcinoids and adenocarcinomas are very rare. Carcinomas of the appendix are usually mucinous adenocarcinomas with a tendency to produce peritoneal pseudomyxoma and without metastatic spread until late in the disease course. Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are a common incidental finding.
Aim(s): We present a case of a 31-year-old woman with endometriosis who underwent laparoscopy for infertility and laparoscopic appendectomy after pelvic MRI showed fluid in the Douglas recessus and periappendiceal adhesions with mucinous collection.
Materials and methods: Histopathological and immunohistochemical studies were done on obtained specimens. Pre-and postoperative serum chromogranin-A, CA125, and CA19-9 were measured.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.
