IntroductionLung Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) range in aggressiveness from low-grade typical carcinoid (TC) and intermediate-grade atypical carcinoid (AC) to the high-grade large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) and small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC). TC have excellent prognosis post-surgery and European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) recommands no adjuvant therapy for these well diferentiated tumors.Case report<p clas...

Introduction: Cardiac disease called acromegalic cardiomyopathy may be present in patients with acromegaly at diagnosis, however most echocardiographic studies showed that systolic function, measured by ejection fraction (EF), in these patients is normal. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is a novel method that allows for the study of global longitudinal strain (GLS), a marker of early and subclinical left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction. Some studies show subclini...
