Introduction: Glucagonomas are rare functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (p NETs), with an annual occurrence of 0.01 to 0.1 new cases per 100,000. Objective: We focused on presenting symptoms, primary’s size and location, presence of metastases, biomarkers at diagnosis, histology, response to first line treatment (clinical and biochemical), disease fee survival (DFS) and PFS (progression free survival). Methods: Eighteen pa...

Somatostatin receptors in olfactory neuroblastoma: The rationale for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy

Porto Juliana , Hayes Aimee , Branton Alexander , Caplin Martyn , Alusi Martyn , Grossman Ashley

Olfactory neuroblastoma (ONB) is a rare neuroendocrine tumour with a slow onset of symptoms, and classically a propensity for recurrence and a poor prognosis. Due to its rarity, there is no agreed standard therapy, but treatment will usually include surgical resection, adjuvant radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. However, such tumours very often show positive uptake on somatostatin receptor radionuclide scanning, and selective use of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) ...
