Context: ACTH-producing neuroendocrine cancer (NEC) of the thymus is rare. Lymph nodes and bone are most common metastatic sites. ACTH-secreting thymic NEC with pancreatic metastasis was only reported in one case. Most cases presented with florid Cushing syndrome (CS). Our case had thymic NEC with pancreatic metastasis, presenting with intermittent flush instead of typical CS. We demonstrate the comprehensive information of somatostatin receptors (SSTR), three different kinds ...

In addition to higher estrogen receptor (ER)β l...
