Unusual Behavior of Gastric Carcinoid Type 1 Abstract #295

Introduction: Gastric carcinoids (GC) are rare tumors of the stomach. GC type 1 are associated with chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) and are the most benign type, having low metastatic potential.
Aim(s): Death from metastatic disease has been reported in only three patients in a review of 636 cases. We present a case of a man who died from metastatic GC type 1.
Materials and methods: In 1998, a 60-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus was diagnosed as having pernicious anemia in CAG. An esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGDS) showed a well-differentiated GC, immunoreactive to antibody anti-CgA, Ki-67 index <2% with infiltration to submucosal tonic, of 1.2 cm, which was enucleated.

#11 Plasma chromogranin - A response to octreotide test: Prognostic value for clinical outcome in endocrine digestive tumors
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) expressing somatostatin receptors may be treated with somatostatin analogues (SSAs). Selection criteria are a positive Octreoscan® or a >50% hormone level decrease after octreotide s.c. injection (octreotide test) (OT). Plasma chromogranin A (CgA) is the best general GEP-NET marker, but data on CgA response to OT are scant.

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

#120 Somatostatin receptors 1-5 expression in a large series of well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: For their antisecretive and antiproliferative effect somatostatin analogs (SA) have been used in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), based on the expression of somatostatin receptors (sstRs). The potential availability of new SA for the treatment of patients with NETs suggests a better characterization of sstRs.

#263 Chronic Atrophic Gastritis Associated with Hyperparathyroidism: A prospective Study
Introduction: The association of gastric carcinoids (GCs) type 1 and hyperparathyroidism (HPTH) has been reported, whereas a possible association between chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) and HPTH is still scant.

#272 Plasma Chromogranin A in Patients with MEN I and Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors
Introduction: Circulating chromogranin A(CgA) is considered a useful marker for gastroenteropancreatic endocrine tumors. Data on its pattern in MEN-1 patients with non-functioning pancreatic tumors(NFPT) are scant.
