Therapy with 177Lu marked somatostatin analogues in a case of pancreatic metastatic neuroendocrine tumor

Belo Sandra , Lucena Ines , Santos Ana Paula , Afonso Luis Pedro , Sanches Cristina , Duarte Hugo

Introduction: Conventional systemic therapies have limited role in metastasized neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Therefore an increasing role is attributed to 177Lu labeled somatostatin analogues (SA).Case: Man, 52 years, referred because of NET, diagnosed following liver biopsy for hepatic nodules (liver tissue infiltrated by NET, compatible with metastases). Endoscopic ultrasound revealed pancreatic nodular formation, 40×24 mm; 99</sup...

68Ga-DOTA-NOC PET/CT role in the follow-up of patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma

Couto Joana , Martins Raquel , Lucena Ines , Menezes Joana , Santos Ana Paula , Rodrigues Elisabete , Duarte Hugo , Torres Isabel

Introduction: About 50% of patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) have persistent or recurrent disease after surgery.For a calcitonin (ct) value greater than 150 pg/ml, it is suggested by international guidelines performing additional imaging exams (AIE) for evaluating the presence of distant metastasis. It is often difficult to assess the presence of nodal disease and secondary liver lesions (often miliary) by ‘morphological’ imaging ...

Case Report: Successful treatment of an atypical lung neuroendocrine neoplasm with PRRT

Guerreiro Vanessa , Lucena Ines , Paula Santos Ana , Prospero Ines , Ferreira Goncalo , Gil Santos Sara , Oliveira Joana , Freitas Paula , Torres Isabel , Duarte Hugo

Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) arise from specialized cells called neuroendocrine cells spread through the body, mainly in the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and lung. Pathological classification of Lung NENs include well differentiated NENs, that can be classified as typical or atypical carcinoids, and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), classified as small-cell lung carcinoma (SC-NEC) or large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LC-NEC). We present a case o...

Introduction: Positive radiotracer uptake by the thyroid gland can occur in PET-CT. It’s meaning has led to conflicting results mainly resulting from small studies.Objective: We aim to present a large single institution consecutive case series.Material and methods: Observational, descriptive and retrospective study of the PET-CT scans performed between the years 2000–2017. We searched the word thyroid in the computer imag...

Lung adenocarcinoma in a 34-year-old female SDHB asynptomatic mutation carrier – case report

Matos Maria Joao , Costa Claudia , Santos Ana Paula , Teixeira Manuel , Franco Carlos , Bento Joao , Azevedo Isabel , Dias Susana , Sampaio Ines Lucena , Cunha Ana Luisa , Torres Isabel

Introduction: Patients with germline mutations in one of the succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) genes are at substantially increased risk of developing paragangliomas (PGL) and pheochromocytomas (PCC). Mutations in SDHB are the most commonly found gene mutations in PC/PGL and are associated with younger ages at presentation, higher rates of metastases and poorer prognosis. Although familial PGL syndromes were initially thought to predispose only for PCC and PGL, other tumor types s...

Thyroid papillary carcinoma in a toxic adenoma: case report

Martins Raquel G , Couto Joana , Santos Ana Paula , Matos Maria Joao , Capelo Rosa , Silva Jose Pedro , Lucena Ines , Cambao Mariana , Torres Isabel

Introduction: Malignant toxic thyroid nodules are rare, with few cases described in the literature. The prevalence of malignancy in toxic adenomas varies between 1 and 8% in different series (most, corresponding to <2.5%). For that reason, international guidelines recommend that they should not be submitted to fine needle aspiration biopsy.Case report: A 42-year-old female patient without relevant previous medical history was admitted to our hospital...
