Multimodal imaging in functional endocrine pancreatic tumors.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2010 Nov;5(6):855-866

c Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University Hospital of Tübingen, Hoppe-Seyler-Str. 3, 72076 Tübingen, Germany.

Endocrine pancreatic tumors, also known as pancreatic islet tumors, are rare entities of neuroendocrine origin that are located within the pancreas or in its close proximity. Approximately 50% of these tumors secrete biologically active substances that lead to the development of specific clinical syndromes. Once diagnosis has been established on the basis of clinical and laboratory findings, localization of the source of pathologic hormone secretion is warranted. Read More

Postpneumonectomy-like syndrome due to bronchial carcinoid: a unique case report.

BMC Pulm Med 2019 Feb 18;19(1):44. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

1st Respiratory Medicine Department, University of Athens, "Sotiria" Hospital, 152 Mesogeion Ave, 115 27, Athens, Greece.

Background: Postpneumonectomy-like syndrome is a rare condition resulting from unilateral lung disease with severe lung volume loss leading to excessive mediastinal shift and herniation of the healthy lung into the contralateral hemithorax, mimicking the mediastinal shift observed in postpneumonectomy syndrome after pneumonectomy. We report a unique case of postpneumonectomy-like syndrome caused by an atypical bronchial carcinoid completely occluding the left main bronchus.

Case Presentation: A 25-year-old woman presented with symptoms of chronic exertional dyspnea and productive cough. Read More

Goblet Cell Carcinoid/Carcinoma: An Update.

Adv Anat Pathol 2019 Mar;26(2):75-83

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA.

Goblet cell carcinoid (GCC) or goblet cell carcinoma is a unique mixed endocrine-exocrine neoplasm that is almost exclusively seen in the appendix. The hallmark of GCC is the concentric infiltration of the appendiceal wall by small tight clusters, nests or cords of tumor cells that exhibit a goblet cell morphology with a small compressed nucleus and conspicuous intracytoplasmic mucin. The coexistence of high-grade adenocarcinoma with GCC has been increasingly recognized as a common finding, which has been called adenocarcinoma ex GCC or mixed GCC-adenocarcinoma. Read More

Blood Transcript Profiling for the Detection of Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results of a Large Independent Validation Study.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2018 4;9:740. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Endocrine Oncology, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands.

Available neuroendocrine biomarkers are considered to have insufficient accuracy to discriminate patients with gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) from healthy controls. Recent studies have demonstrated a potential role for circulating neuroendocrine specific transcripts analysis-the NETest-as a more accurate biomarker for NETs compared to available biomarkers. This study was initiated to independently validate the discriminative value of the NETest as well as the association between tumor characteristics and NETest score. Read More

T-Cell-Inflamed Gene-Expression Profile, Programmed Death Ligand 1 Expression, and Tumor Mutational Burden Predict Efficacy in Patients Treated With Pembrolizumab Across 20 Cancers: KEYNOTE-028.

J Clin Oncol 2019 Feb 13;37(4):318-327. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ.

Purpose: Biomarkers that can predict response to anti-programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) therapy across multiple tumor types include a T-cell-inflamed gene-expression profile (GEP), programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression, and tumor mutational burden (TMB). Associations between these biomarkers and the clinical efficacy of pembrolizumab were evaluated in a clinical trial that encompassed 20 cohorts of patients with advanced solid tumors.

[Neoendocrine carcinoma of the esophagus: report of a case].

Rev Gastroenterol Peru 2018 Jul-Sep;38(3):293-296

Escuela de Medicina, Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas. Lima, Perú; Departamento de Medicina Interna, Hospital Nacional Hipólito Unanue. Lima, Perú.

Neuroendocrine carcinoma of esophagus represents less than 2% of cases of cancer of the esophagus. This presentation is extremely unusual, as this type of carcinoma typically presents with greater frequency in bronchopulmonary regions. The symptoms are usually associated with esophageal obstruction and include odynophagia, dysphagia and weight loss and are not usually associated with Carcinoid syndrome. Read More

Octreotide SC depot in patients with acromegaly and functioning neuroendocrine tumors: a phase 2, multicenter study.

Cancer Chemother Pharmacol 2019 Feb 8;83(2):375-385. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Endocrinology, DiMI and CEBR, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.

Purpose: Octreotide SC depot is a novel, ready-to-use formulation administered via a thin needle. In a phase 1 study in healthy volunteers, this formulation provided higher bioavailability of octreotide with faster onset and stronger suppression of IGF-1 in healthy volunteers versus long-acting intramuscular (IM) octreotide. This phase 2 study evaluated the pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and safety of octreotide SC depot in patients with acromegaly and functioning NETs, previously treated with octreotide IM. Read More

Carcinoid tumors of the thymus and Cushing's syndrome: Clinicopathologic features and current best evidence regarding the cell of origin of these unusual neoplasms.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2019 Feb 22;38:71-79. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, United States of America.

It is uncertain whether thymic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) associated with Cushing's syndrome (CS) produce corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) and whether the thymus contains ACTH and/or CRH cells that could originate NET. The clinicopathologic features of 5 typical (TC) and 6 atypical carcinoids (ATC), 10 additional non-neoplastic thymi, 6 adrenal glands with bilateral nodular hyperplasia and 8 adrenal cortical adenomas were reviewed. Representative slides were immunostained for ACTH and CRH. Read More

Clinicopathologic profiling of lung carcinoids with a Ki67 index greater than 20.

Neuroendocrinology 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.


The clinicopathological features of lung neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) with a high proliferative index at the border area between atypical carcinoid and neuroendocrine carcinoma, have not been investigated so far. The aim of this study was, therefore, to search for lung NENs, which are well-differentiated but show Ki67 values that overlap with those of poorly differentiated NENs (PD-NENs). Resected lung NENs from 244 Japanese patients were reviewed and Ki67 index was assessed in all tumors. Read More

Metastatic thymic carcinoid responds to chemoradiation and octreotide: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(47):e13286

Department of Oncology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, China.

Rationale: Thymic carcinoids are a rare type of malignant neuroendocrine tumors which have a poor prognosis due to their distant metastasis, invasive behaviour, and postoperative recurrence. Surgical resection is still the fundamental mode for treating thymic carcinoids. Here, we report the rapid shrinkage of an atypical thymic carcinoid with multiple metastases following chemoradiation plus octreotide as a first-line therapy PATIENT CONCERNS:: A 39-year-old Chinese man presented with chest tightness, dyspnea with a history of lumbago and untreated malignant thymoma.
