Treatment of Glucagonoma-Related Necrolytic Migratory Erythema With Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy.

Clin Nucl Med 2021 May 26. Epub 2021 May 26.

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey.

Abstract: Glucagonomas are rare types of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. They may present with a clinical entity called glucagonoma syndrome, which includes necrolytic migratory erythema as a skin component. Here we present a 26-year-old woman experiencing ongoing skin lesions, excessive weight loss, and nausea. Read More

[Neuroendorine paraneoplastic syndromes].

M Böhm R Gellner

Hautarzt 2021 Apr 4;72(4):299-306. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Medizinische Klinik B, Universitätsklinikum Münster, Münster, Deutschland.

Skin is commonly affected by neuroendorine paraneoplastic syndromes (PNS). This is due to the expression of receptors in the skin by which abnormally secreted neuroendocrine hormones and mediators elicit directly, and indirectly, cutaneous key signs and thus facilitate early diagnosis of these diseases. In acromegaly, induction of the growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor‑1 axis results in trophic changes of the acral portions of the skin and mucosal membranes including cutis verticis gyrata.

Pancreatoduodenectomy for Neuroendocrine Tumors in Patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1: An AFCE (Association Francophone de Chirurgie Endocrinienne) and GTE (Groupe d'étude des Tumeurs Endocrines) Study.

World J Surg 2021 Jun 1;45(6):1794-1802. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms: Clinicopathological features and pathological staging.

Histol Histopathol 2021 Apr 11;36(4):367-382. Epub 2020 Dec 11.

School of Medicine, Griffith University, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia.

The nomenclature and classification of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms has evolved in the last 15 years based on the advances in knowledge of the genomics, clinical behaviour and response to therapies. The current 2019 World Health Organization classification of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms categorises them into three groups; pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PanNETs)(grade 1 grade 2, grade 3), pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas and mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNENs) based on the mitotic rate, Ki-67 index, morphological differentiation and/or co-existing tissue subtype. PanNETs are also classified into non-functional NET, insulinoma, gastrinoma, VIPoma, glucagonoma, somatostatinoma, ACTH-producing NET and serotonin producing NET based on hormone production and clinical manifestations.

Expert Opin Pharmacother 2021 Apr 11;22(6):685-693. Epub 2020 Nov 11.

Digestive Diseases Branch, NIDDK,NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA.

: In the past, controlling the hormone-excess-state was the main determinant of survival in Functional-Neuroendocrine-Neoplasm-syndromes (F-NENs). This was difficult because the pharmacological-armamentarium available was limited. Recently, new therapeutic strategies have increased but it also generated controversies/uncertainties. Read More
