Treatment and Survival of 351 Patients Diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma in 2 Melanoma and Neuroendocrine Tumor Expert-Centers in the Netherlands Abstract #1792

Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and potentially aggressive neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Because of its frequency, adequate data on treatment and survival are lacking.
Aim(s): To describe treatment and survival of patients with MCC referred to 2 expert-centers.
Materials and methods: Patients with histologically confirmed MCC in 1990-2014 were included. Data on patient, tumor characteristics and treatment were collected. Primary endpoints were relapse-free survival (RFS), overall survival (OS) and disease-specific survival (DSS).

#69 Frequent biological association of Merkel cell polyomavirus with Merkel cell carcinomas
Introduction: Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) DNA has been detected by PCR in 75–100% of Merkel cell carcinomas (MCC), an aggressive neuroendocrine skin cancer. MCPyV is a 5.4 kb DNA virus that expresses tumor (T) antigen in tumor tissues.

#634 Merkel Cell Carcinoma in a Nine-Year-Old Girl
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) of the skin is a rare neuroendocrine tumor characterized by its rapid growth and aggressive clinical behavior. MCC is a typical tumor of older age (average age is 65 years). In children and adolescents less than 20 years of age, it is extremely rare. Information regarding MCC in childhood can be found in the literature only in the form of individual case reports. Due to the rarity of MCC in the young population, any clinical studies or treatment recommendations in these patients are missing.
