  • [Title] Successful type-oriented endoscopic resection for gastric carcinoid tumors: A case report.
  • The standard treatment in Japan for gastric carcinoid has been gastrectomy with lymphadenectomy.
  • This report describes the possibility of endoscopic treatment as an appropriate option for gastric carcinoid fulfilling certain conditions.
  • The patient had hypergastrinemia with pernicious anemia and type A chronic atrophic gastritis, suggesting that the tumors were type I in Rindi's classification.
  • Both tumors were located in the mucosal layer with no cellular polymorphism and were chromogranin A positive.
  • Neither tumor recurrence in the stomach nor distant metastases have been documented during the 5 years of follow-up.
  • Although many type I gastric carcinoids may be clinically indolent, reports on successful endoscopic treatment for this carcinoid have been scanty in the literature in Japan, presumably because of the hitherto surgical treatment stance for the disease.
  • This report discusses how the size, number, depth and histological grading of the type I gastric carcinoid could allow the correct identification of a benign or malignant propensity of an individual tumor and how endoscopic resection could be a treatment of choice when these factors render it feasible.
  • This stance could also obviate unnecessary surgical resection for more benign tumors.

  • [Title] Clinicopathological features of gastric glomus tumor.
  • AIM: To study the clinicopathological features of gastric glomus tumor and review the related Chinese literature published in 1990-2010.
  • METHODS: A case of gastric glomus tumor was reported.
  • Clinicopathological findings in 56 cases of gastric glomus tumor were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Gastric glomus tumor was far more common in women than in men with a female to male ratio of 1.6:1.
  • The tumor was located in antrum of the stomach.
  • The greatest diameter of the tumor was 0.8-11 cm.
  • Histologically, the tumor was comprised of nests of glomus cells surrounding the capillaries.
  • Vimentin, smooth muscle actin and actin were expressed in the tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: Gastric glomus tumor is a rare benign mesenchymal neoplasm.
  • Its diagnosis depends on pathologic examination.
  • Differential diagnosis includes gastrointestinal stromal tumor, paraganglioma and carcinoid tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Carcinoid tumors arising in tailgut cysts may be associated with estrogen receptor status: case report and review of the literature.
  • Complications of tailgut cysts include benign reactive lesions associated with infection and inflammation, and malignant transformation.
  • Six cases of carcinoid tumor arising in tailgut cysts have been reported in the medical literature to date.
  • Here we report another case of carcinoid tumor arising in a tailgut cyst.
  • Because six of seven cases occurred in females, we postulate that these tumors are hormone-associated.
  • We found strong estrogen receptor immunoreactivity of the benign squamous and columnar cyst-lining cells as well as carcinoid tumor cells, in addition to neuroendocrine differentiation in the tumor cells and scattered cyst-lining cells.

  • [Title] [Middle ear adenoma/middle ear carcinoid--an unproblematic tumor?].
  • [Transliterated title] Mittelohradenom/Mittelohrkarzinoid--ein unproblematischer Tumor?
  • OBJECTIVES: Adenomas/carcinoid tumors of the middle ear are very rare tumors of young to middle aged patients.
  • The terms adenoma and carcinoid tumor of the middle ear can be used as synonyms, with the WHO favouring the term middle ear adenoma (MEA).
  • These tumors usually present with unspecific clinical symptoms and a long case history.
  • They are classified as benign tumors with only very few reported cases of regional metastasis after years of disease.
  • METHODS AND PATIENTS: This study describes the clinical course and the diagnostic challenges in four cases of this rare tumor entity.
  • In two cases a tumor recurrence was documented with one case recurring six times.
  • The histological differential diagnosis can also be problematic; in one case with a highly atypical morphology it was impossible to arrive at a definite diagnosis during the analysis of a frozen section.
  • The presented cases in this study and the analysis of previously published cases shows that the typical progression described by the current WHO-classification with unproblematic surgical management of the tumor and an uncomplicated further clinical course does not always correspond to reality.

  • [Title] Carcinoid tumors.
  • Carcinoid tumors, which arise from the enterochromaffin cells of the gastrointestinal tract, encompass a diverse group of neoplasms.
  • Once thought to be "carcinoma-like," these neoplasms exhibit a biologic behavior that varies from an indolent, benign course to an aggressive, rapidly progressive, and deadly disease.
  • Today the term carcinoid is reserved for neuroendocrine tumors arising from the small bowel or neuroendocrine tumors that can cause carcinoid syndrome.
  • For the general surgeon there are several "carcinoid" tumors that he or she must be familiar with because many of these lesions are encountered during emergency laparotomies or incidentally discovered during investigation for vague abdominal pain.
  • This review focuses on the gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors that general surgeons are likely to encounter during their career.

  • The clinical presentation allows prediction of the diagnosis and cell type and directs evaluation and treatment.
  • Young age, central tumor, and no nodal enlargement are highly suggestive of typical carcinoid.
  • Mediastinoscopy is suggested when there is moderate suspicion of atypical carcinoid (central cN1 or peripheral cN0), with lobectomy and lymphadenectomy if the mediastinal nodes are benign.
  • For a high suspicion of atypical carcinoid (central cN2, peripheral cN1, 2), imaging for distant metastases and mediastinoscopy is suggested, with multimodality treatment for an atypical carcinoid with N2 involvement.

  • The tumor histology and prognosis correlate closely.
  • The typical carcinoid tumors are well differentiated with benign course.
  • The treatment of the typical carcinoid is a conservative surgery and the prognosis is good.
  • But, typical carcinoid tumor of the nasal cavity was extremely rare, so the treatment has not been established.
  • We report a case of typical carcinoid tumor of the nasal cavity in a 76-year-old man who treated by conservative surgery using sinus endoscopy.
  • To the best of our knowledge this is the first report on an typical carcinoid in the nasal cavity.

  • [Title] Transient facial palsy in two cases of benign, very rare middle ear tumors (carcinoid tumor and myxoma).
  • OBJECTIVE: Presentation of the clinical features of 2 very rare middle ear tumors in which the guiding symptom was facial palsy.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Illustrative case reports about a myxoma and a carcinoid tumor of the middle ear associated with peripheral facial palsy.
  • Moreover, both tumor entities are typically found in organs other than the ear; if located in the middle ear, those neoplasms grow rather superficially.
  • If the facial weakness starts together with symptoms suggesting an inflammatory process, the differential diagnosis may be focused first on diseases like herpes zoster oticus and a severe course of acute purulent otitis media.
  • We report the cases of 2 rare middle ear tumors causing facial palsy.

  • [Title] Primary carcinoid tumor of the middle ear: a potentially metastasizing tumor.
  • The concept of a carcinoid tumor in the gastrointestinal tract and lung is well established; less often, patients develop carcinoid tumors in the head and neck region.
  • One particularly uncommon site of origin of carcinoid tumors in the head and neck area is the middle ear.
  • Middle ear carcinoids have previously been approached as benign entities, lacking any capacity for metastasizing.
  • A critical review of the literature, however, disclosed a small number of cases in which middle ear carcinoid tumors have given rise to regional (cervical node) metastases.
  • This in turn suggests that, as is the case with pulmonary carcinoid tumors, middle ear carcinoids should be thought of as low-grade malignancies which, while relatively slow-growing, nevertheless possess a limited capacity for spreading to regional lymph nodes.
  • To date, distant metastases have not been associated with middle ear carcinoid tumors.

  • [Title] Surgical management of bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors: an institutional experience.
  • Bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors are well known as low-grade malignant tumors with fairly benign behaviors; however, distant metastasis after complete resection and multiple carcinoid tumors in the resected lungs have been sporadically reported.
  • For better understanding of bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors, we reviewed our institutional experience.
  • Eight patients with bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors underwent complete pulmonary resection.
  • In one patient who received a lobectomy for a peripheral nodule, multiple carcinoid tumors were found in the resected specimen.
  • In one patient, tumors recurred at the bronchial stump and in the liver approximately five years after complete pulmonary resection.
  • Despite a small number of cases, our study supported the idea that bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors might require major surgical procedures and that complete pulmonary resection of typical carcinoid tumors could expect long-term survival.

  • [Title] An analysis of rare carcinoid tumors: clarifying these clinical conundrums.
  • Carcinoid tumors are distinct neuroendocrine neoplasms with characteristic histological, clinical, and biological properties.
  • Though commonly associated with the gastrointestinal tract and bronchopulmonary system, a substantial number of these tumors originate in less common anatomical sites and can range from indolent, unrecognized entities to highly active, metastatic secretory tumors.
  • The authors reviewed 13,715 carcinoid tumors identified by three consecutive registries of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) from 1950 to 1999, focusing on the anatomic sites accounting for less than one percent of all carcinoids.
  • In addition, data from the world's literature published on carcinoid tumors within these particular anatomic locations were then analyzed with respect to incidence, clinical presentation, symptoms, diagnostic evaluation, microscopic and immunohistochemical findings, treatment strategies, and prognosis.
  • The primary organs in which carcinoids are most commonly mistaken for some of the more conspicuous endemic tumors include the esophagus, pancreas, liver, biliary tract, gallbladder, and Meckel's diverticulum, as well as within the pelvic and otolaryngeal organs and the breast.
  • Tumors with the worst prognosis were those that involved the pancreas (37.5%: 5-year survival) and those in the cervix (12-33%: 3-year survival).
  • The diminution of the likelihood of inadvertently neglecting these often benign, indolent neoplasms that are well known to metastasize if unaddressed would represent an important advance.
  • Familiarity with such unusual sites of origin will facilitate appropriate recognition and characterization of such tumors, allowing for timely intervention.

  • [Title] Carcinoid-like pattern in sebaceous neoplasms: another distinctive, previously unrecognized pattern in extraocular sebaceous carcinoma and sebaceoma.
  • This report emphasizes a carcinoid-like pattern, a previously unrecognized feature in cutaneous sebaceous neoplasms.
  • We report 7 patients with sebaceous tumors in which neoplastic cells were arranged in a trabecular and ribbon-like pattern or formed rosettes/pseudorosettes.
  • The cases included 6 men and 1 woman, with their ages at the diagnosis ranging from 43 to 87 years (median age, 59).
  • The carcinoid-like arrangement of neoplastic cells was the sole pattern in 4 cases, and in 3 cases the so-called labyrinthine/sinusoidal and/or rippled patterns were seen in addition.
  • Although the neoplasm appeared benign architecturally, the presence of cytologic atypia qualified 2 tumors as low-grade carcinomas.
  • We conclude that the carcinoid-like pattern is another distinctive pattern indicative of sebaceous neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Carcinoid tumors of the appendix. Prognostic factors and evaluation of indications for right hemicolectomy.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are thought to be the most common type of appendiceal neoplasms.
  • Although the vast majority of appendiceal carcinoids behave in a benign fashion, they are considered malignant because they all have the potential for invasion, metastasis and production of physiologically active substances.
  • Following confirmation of the diagnosis, secretion of 5-HLAA (5-Hydroxy-Inndole-Acetic Acid) was measured after a 24-hour collection of urine.
  • Also, patients with tumor size more than 1cm underwent a Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy (Octreoscan).
  • RESULTS: The most common site for the tumors was the tip of the appendix (18/22).
  • In sixteen patients the tumor size was less than 1cm, in seven patients the tumor diameter was measured to be 1 to 2cm and in one patient the tumor was 3cm.
  • Most of our patients (16/22) underwent only an appendicectomy, while in the rest of them (in the patients with tumor size between 1-2cm and in the patient with invasion of mesoappendix) a right hemicolectomy was performed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix, in most cases, are found incidentally during appendicectomies, especially in young females and usually are less than 1cm in size, which is probably the reason of the absence of metastases in all cases.
  • Histological examination and size of the tumor are important factors that contribute to the selection of the surgical treatment and both must be estimated by the surgeons to make the final choice.

  • They have a variable biologic behavior, ranging from benign to malignant tumors capable of very late recurrence or metastasis.
  • Liver and lung are frequent sites of carcinoid metastasis, and the central nervous system is exceptionally involved.
  • We report the case of a child with a pulmonary carcinoid initially considered typical, who presented with relapse in the cerebellum and mediastinum 16 years later.
  • After review of the pathology slides, primary and metastatic tumors were reclassified as atypical carcinoid according to the criteria of the 2004 World Health Organization classification of lung tumors.

  • Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare and benign inflammatory entity characterized by fibrofatty thickening of the mesentery.
  • In this present case, MR imaging demonstrated tissue characterization of fibrosis, and partial maximum intensity projection (MIP) and three-dimensional angiography images obtained using multislice CT clearly revealed the extent of the tumor and the vascular appearance affected by the mass.
  • However, a mesenteric metastasis from the carcinoid tumor may show such imaging features.
  • Therefore, when encountering such a case, we suggest that a tentative diagnosis of sclerosing mesenteritis be made, followed by a biopsy for intraoperative histopathologic analysis to avoid aggressive surgery.

  • Since Siegfried Oberndorfer proposed the term "carcinoid" in 1907, over 100 years have passed.
  • In 1876, he was born at Munich and, in 1907 reported a series of 6 cases of "carcinoids" in the small intestine as benign tumorlets.
  • In 1929, he partly revised his initial concept of carcinoid, pointing out some cases being malignant with metastases.
  • A proposal of the concept of GEP system in 1973 was followed by proposals of the concept of neuroendocrine tumor (NET) and the GEP-NET classification based on the WHO histological classification, later developing into the TNM classification by the ENETS (European NET Society), which was founded in 2004.
  • Carcinoids are now included in a corner of the GEP-NET classification with a somewhat confusing expression of "benign biological(clinical) behavior" vs. histological malignancy.

  • [Title] PAX8 Expression in well-differentiated pancreatic endocrine tumors: correlation with clinicopathologic features and comparison with gastrointestinal and pulmonary carcinoid tumors.
  • However, PAX8 expression has not previously been examined in pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs).
  • PAX8 expression in other well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (WDNETs) was also studied.
  • In total, 190 tumors were evaluated: 156 primary WDNETs (63 PETs, 31 ileal, 5 duodenal, 5 gastric, 19 appendiceal, 13 rectal, and 20 pulmonary carcinoid tumors) and 34 liver metastases (18 PETs and 16 ileal carcinoid tumors).
  • Expression of PAX8 was significantly associated with WHO category 1.1 ("benign" behavior) compared with category 1.2 (uncertain behavior) or 2 (well-differentiated endocrine carcinoma) (positive in 100%, 64%, and 52% of tumors, respectively; P<0.05).
  • PAX8-positive PETs were also significantly smaller and more often clinically functional; PAX8-negative tumors were more frequently associated with liver metastases.
  • PAX8 expression was detected in 0/20 (0%) pulmonary, 1/5 (20%) gastric, 5/5 (100%) duodenal, 0/31 (0%) ileal, 4/19 (21%) appendiceal, and 11/13 (85%) rectal carcinoid tumors.
  • Among the liver metastases, PAX8 was positive in 9/18 (50%) metastatic PETs compared with 0/16 (0%) metastatic ileal carcinoid tumors.
  • In the GI tract, PAX8 is positive in the majority of duodenal and rectal carcinoid tumors, and in a minor subset of appendiceal and gastric carcinoids.

  • [Title] Primary carcinoid tumors of the testis: a clinicopathologic study of 29 cases.
  • Testicular carcinoid tumors are rare with only limited studies.
  • We identified 29 primary testicular carcinoid cases from 7 academic institutions.
  • Two patients had carcinoid syndrome including diarrhea, hot flashes, and palpitations.
  • Nineteen were pure carcinoid tumors, 3 were associated with cystic teratoma, 2 with cysts lacking epithelial lining, 4 with epidermoid cyst, and 1 with dermoid cyst.
  • Mitotic figures were rare in primary carcinoid tumors with only 3 cases showing more than 2 per 10 HPF; necrosis was found in only 1 case.
  • Follow-up, available in 24 cases, ranged from 1 to 228 months (mean 52.7 mo); of the 20 patients with testicular typical carcinoid tumors found premortem, all were alive at last follow-up without recurrences or metastases.
  • Of the 4 patients with a primary atypical carcinoid tumor, 1 at the time of diagnosis had retroperitoneal and lung metastases who after chemotherapy underwent resection of the retroperitoneal tumor showing metastatic yolk sac tumor and embryonal carcinoma.
  • The other 2 patients with atypical carcinoid and follow-up had no evidence of disease at 68 and 114 months.
  • Most primary carcinoid tumors of the testis have a benign clinical course even if associated with epidermoid/dermoid cysts, or histologically mature teratoma.
  • However, lesions with the morphology of atypical carcinoid can occasionally exhibit metastatic spread.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Total gastrectomy for type 1 gastric carcinoid: an unusual surgical indication?
  • Gastric carcinoid is a relatively rare neoplasm with peculiar features which differentiate it from the intestinal and pulmonary carcinoid and, obviously, from gastric adenocarcinoma.
  • Gastric carcinoids are divided into three different types: Type 1, associated with gastric atrophy and megaloblastic anemia; Type 2, associated with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome within a type 1 multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN); and Type 3, sporadic tumor not associated with other lesions, particularly invasive and with poor prognosis.
  • Type 1 carcinoid is usually asymptomatic and casually detected at endoscopy due to aspecific symptoms or to screening in patients with atrophic gastritis.
  • It is generally small, multifocal and located in the gastric fundus, has no tendency for vascular invasion and is associated with a benign course.
  • We report a case of a woman with a type 1 gastric carcinoid in which, for the presence of an extended micro-polyposis of the fundus a total gastrectomy was necessary for treatment.
  • In conclusion this finding, unknown before surgery, emphasizes the need for careful assessment also in the presence of apparently less important gastric carcinoid lesions.

  • [Title] Carcinoid tumors of the appendix in children: experience from a tertiary center in northern Greece.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are rare in childhood and usually have a benign clinical course.
  • The aim of the study was to report the frequency, clinical presentation, tumor characteristics, and outcome of children with appendiceal carcinoid treated in a pediatric oncology department.
  • Demographics, clinical presentation, tumor characteristics, and follow-up results were recorded.
  • RESULTS: Among 839 admissions, 19 patients (9 boys) with appendiceal carcinoid were identified during the study period.
  • In all of the cases, diagnosis was established after appendectomy.
  • The mean tumor diameter was 4.55 (± 3.45) mm (range 1-15 mm).
  • In 18 children tumor size was ≤ 10 mm and did not infiltrate surrounding tissues.
  • All of the tumors were located at the tip of the appendix and were of the classic histological type.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix in children are rare.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] From the archives of the AFIP: benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery: radiologic-pathologic correlation.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis, sclerosing mesenteritis, inflammatory pseudotumor, and extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor constitute a loosely associated group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis is a locally aggressive, benign proliferative process that may occur sporadically or in association with familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare idiopathic disorder that most commonly produces a stellate mass within the mesentery and should be differentiated from metastatic disease, specifically metastatic carcinoid, because it frequently responds to conservative or medical management.
  • Inflammatory pseudotumor (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor) is a benign, chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown cause that manifests as a solid mesenteric mass, indistinguishable from malignancy.
  • Extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor is a tumor of submesothelial origin that is identical to the solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • When located in the mesentery or peritoneal cavity, extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor has an imaging pattern that must be differentiated from metastatic disease, soft-tissue sarcomas, and other benign and malignant neoplasms of the mesentery and peritoneum.
  • Knowledge of this group of benign fibrous tumors and tumorlike lesions of the mesentery is important in the preoperative evaluation of a mesenteric mass.

  • The middle ear is a rare site for benign tumors.
  • We report six patients with benign middle ear tumors surgicaly removed: three with carcinoid, one with adenoma, and two with paraganglioma.
  • These tumors showed similar histological features in trabecular and glandular architecture, so further immunohistochemical study was needed to make a definitive histopathological diagnosis.
  • When we analyzed clinical features of patients diagnosed immunohistochemically, the differentiation of two patients with paraganglioma from the remaining four with adenomatous tumors such as adenoma and carcinoid was relatively easy from otomicroscopic findings and enhancement in temporal bone MRI.
  • It was however difficult to differentiate patients with adenomatous tumors from each other because they induced similar clinical symptoms and showed similar findings in images.
  • For a definitive diagnosis, it is necessary to conduct exploratory tympanotomy or removal of the tumors to obtain enough specimen for histological and immunohistochemical studies.
  • Tumors induced no bone destruction or complications.
  • We recommend staged operations for total removal of tumors and for good postoperative hearing.

  • The histological examination indicated carcinoid tumor.
  • Non-antral, multiple polyps could cover silent neuroendocrine tumors, which are slowly growing benign endocrine tumors, however, they also might be high malignity endocrine carcinomas.
  • These tumors could be easily recognized in the clinical practice by measuring the serum or tissue chromogranin A level and other markers of tumor growth.
  • Thus screening of gastric endocrine tumors in type 1 diabetic patients with co-morbid autoimmune diseases is recommended.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Genetic differentiation of appendiceal tumor malignancy: a guide for the perplexed.
  • OBJECTIVE: To use differential gene expression of candidate markers to discriminate benign appendiceal carcinoids (APCs) from malignant and mixed cell APCs.
  • SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Controversy exists in regard to the appropriate surgical management of APCs since it is sometimes difficult to predict tumor behavior using traditional pathologic criteria.
  • METHODS: Total RNA was isolated using TRIzol reagent from 42 appendiceal samples, including appendiceal carcinoids identified at exploration for appendicitis (no evidence of metastasis; n = 16), appendicitis specimens (n = 11), malignant appendiceal tumors (> 1.5 cm, evidence of metastatic invasion; n = 7), and mixed (goblet) cell appendiceal adenocarcinoids (n = 3), normal appendiceal tissue (n = 5), and 5 colorectal cancers.
  • RESULTS: CgA message was elevated (> 1000-fold, P < 0.05) in all tumor types.
  • MAGE-D2 and MTA1 message were significantly elevated (> 10-fold, P < 0.01) in the malignant and goblet cell adenocarcinoid tumors but not in the appendicitis-associated carcinoids or normal mucosa.
  • Elevated CgA transcript and protein levels indicative of a carcinoid tumor were identified in one acute appendicitis sample with no histologic evidence of a tumor.
  • CgA identified all appendiceal tumors as well as covert lesions, which may be more prevalent than previously recognized.
  • The molecular delineation of malignant appendiceal tumor potential provides a scientific basis to define the appropriate surgical management as opposed to morphologic assessment alone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary presacral neuroendocrine tumor associated with imperforate anus.
  • BACKGROUND: Presacral masses are unusual growths that have a limited differential diagnosis, typically not including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
  • Classically, NETs are well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic tumors of probable benign behavior.
  • These tumors are associated with a typical morphologic pattern and involve the distal colon, rectum, and genitourinary tract; they are considered less aggressive, frequently asymptomatic, and rarely cause carcinoid syndrome, even when metastatic.
  • Neuroendocrine tumors of the presacral region are extremely rare and few have been described in the literature.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We present an interesting case of a woman with a history of imperforate anus that was found to have a primary neuroendocrine tumor of the presacral region with no rectal wall involvement.
  • CONCLUSION: We argue that this is a primary gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor which likely originated from cells of hindgut origin that underwent an abnormal migration during embryonic development.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A newly identified RET proto-oncogene polymorphism is found in a high number of endocrine tumor patients.
  • To investigate endocrine tumor tissue characteristic RET proto-oncogene expression, we performed quantitative RT-PCR, Northern blot and Southern blot analyses of benign and malignant endocrine-derived tissues.
  • We newly describe RET proto-oncogene expression in carcinoid-, gastrinoma- and insulinoma-derived tissue samples.
  • In addition, the presence of a 3'-terminally truncated RET proto-oncogene mRNA variant in benign and malignant thyroid neoplasias, as well as in a pheochromocytoma, an ovarian carcinoma and a medullary thyroid carcinoma, is demonstrated.
  • Heterozygous genotypes were found in a significantly higher percentage in samples derived from endocrine tumor patients when compared with those from healthy control subjects.
  • Homozygosity for allele 2 was found exclusively in somatic DNA derived from endocrine tumors with high malignant potential.
  • A heterozygous genotype for this polymorphism is found in a considerable number of endocrine tumor patients.

  • [Title] [Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors. The spectrum of histologic subtypes and current concept on diagnosis and treatment].
  • Neuroendocrine tumors of the lung represent a broad spectrum of morphologic types that share specific morphologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and molecular characteristics.
  • The classification of neuroendocrine lung tumors has changed over the last decades and currently four categories are distinguished: typical carcinoid tumor, atypical carcinoid tumor, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and small cell carcinoma.
  • Neuroendocrine tumors of the lung comprise approximately 20% of all primary lung cancers.
  • Because of differences in clinical behavior, therapy, and prognosis, a reliable histological diagnosis, as well as clinical and pathological staging system are essential for an appropriate medical proceedings.
  • All carcinoids are malignant tumors with the potential to metastasize.
  • The majority of patients with pulmonary carcinoid have an excellent survival, even if they present with lymph node metastases.
  • Large cell neuroendocrine and small cell carcinoma progress rapidly and are generally widespread at the moment of diagnosis.
  • Increased knowledge about pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors biology and the genetic characteristics, imply that carcinoid tumors appear to have a different etiology and pathogenesis than large cell neuroendocrine and small cell carcinoma.
  • In practice, it could be easiest to conceptualize this group of pulmonary tumors as a spectrum of malignancy ranging from the low grade typical carcinoid to the highly malignant large cell neuroendocrine and small cell carcinoma.
  • Typical carcinoid tumors associated with a fairly benign behavior should be classified as low-grade neuroendocrine tumor/carcinoma (G1) and atypical carcinoid tumors as intermediate-grade tumor/carcinoma (G2).
  • Whereas, large cell neuroendocrine and small cell carcinoma should be grouped together under the designation of high-grade neuroendocrine tumor/carcinoma (G3).

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Carcinoid Tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Goblet cell carcinoid (GCC) of the vermiform appendix is an uncommon neoplasm and its histogenesis is controversial.
  • Whether GCC represents a morphological variant of classical appendiceal carcinoid or a mucin-producing adenocarcinoma is still conjectural.
  • Little is known about the immunohistochemical expression of cytokeratins 7 (CK7) and 20 (CK20) in appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors.
  • In this study, we compared the expression of CK7 and CK20 in 17 cases of appendiceal GCC and 25 cases of classical carcinoid.
  • The tumors were also evaluated for Ki-67 proliferation index, mitotic activity, tumor necrosis, extracellular pools of mucin, obvious intestinal type adenocarcinomatous foci, angiolymphatic permeation, perineural/neural infiltration, and the depth of invasion of the appendix wall.
  • Immunohistochemically, all 17 (100%) of GCC exhibited strong and diffuse immunopositivity for CK20, whereas expression of CK7 was present in 12 cases (70.5%), ranging from 5 to 50% of tumor cells being labeled.
  • On the other hand, 25 cases of classical carcinoid tumors were consistently negative for CK7; however, 4 cases (16%) showed immunolabeling for CK20 in 25-50% of the tumor cells.
  • This study shows that in addition to the morphological differences, GCC (CK7/CK20-positive) and classical carcinoid (CK7/CK20-negative) differ in their expression of CK7 and CK20.
  • Goblet cell carcinoid should be regarded as a crypt cell or an amphicrine carcinoma rather than a variant of carcinoid tumor, a lesion that has benign connotations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Neuroendocrine neoplasms of the larynx are rare but are the most common nonsquamous tumors of this organ.
  • In the past, there has been considerable confusion about the nature and classification of these neoplasms, but the current consensus is that there are 4 different types of laryngeal neuroendocrine tumors composed of paraganglioma, typical carcinoid, atypical carcinoid tumor, and small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma.
  • Diagnosis is based primarily on light microscopy and confirmed by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy.
  • Precise diagnosis is essential because the natural history, treatment, and prognosis vary widely for the different neoplastic categories.
  • Atypical carcinoid tumors are more common and more aggressive.
  • Small cell neuroendocrine carcinomas are highly aggressive and should be considered disseminated at initial diagnosis.
  • Atypical carcinoid tumors have a 5-year survival rate of approximately 50%, which decreases with time.
  • The biological behavior of laryngeal paraganglioma is generally benign and the prognosis is excellent.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the essential points for the correct diagnosis and best treatment for ovarian growing teratoma syndrome (GTS) developed after surgery and chemotherapy for ovarian immature teratoma.
  • METHODS: Retrospective review of the clinical characteristics and long term follow up results of 22 cases of ovarian GTS to illustrate the unique biological behavior of the tumor and good prognosis of the disease.
  • RESULTS: Pathological examination of the tumors revealed completely benign mature teratoma with G0 grading in 20 cases.
  • The other 2 cases were found to be G0 mature teratoma with concurrent association of malignant somatic cell tumor: carcinoid and primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) respectively.
  • Among the 22 cases of ovarian GTS there are 6 cases with recurrent tumors developed repeatedly, so totally surgical treatments had been performed for 31 times.
  • Such a time factor is of high significance for the diagnosis of ovarian GTS.
  • As the benign behavior of the ovarian GTS together with its poor response to chemotherapy have just been recognized in recent years, they were treated as malignant tumors as their original primary immature teratoma before the year of 1987.
  • The rest 2 patients died of the concurrent association of malignant somatic cell tumors with carcinoid and PNET in 0.1 and 0.3 years respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ovarian GTS is a tumor developed after surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment of malignant ovarian immature teratoma.
  • Pathologic grading of the tumors showed retroconversion of the malignancy of the tumor from G3, G2 or G1 to G0 with good prognosis.
  • The tumor usually remained to be quiescent for long periods of time.
  • But there are also some potential of progressive growth, the tumor may grow to huge size and the recurrent tumor may develop repeatedly for several times more than 10 or 20 years later.
  • Surgical removal should be the main treatment either for the primary or the recurrent tumors.
  • Only correct knowledge about the benign biological behavior of the ovarian GTS and reasonable therapeutic regimen can have the disease ends with good prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) is a minimally invasive procedure used to transanally excise select benign and malignant tumors of the rectum.
  • In addition, a PubMed literature search was performed with use of the key words "transanal endoscopic microsurgery," "TEM," "rectal tumor," and "rectal cancer."
  • RESULTS: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery was performed for rectal adenocarcinoma (n = 17; 53%), adenoma (n = 12; 38%), and carcinoid tumors (n = 3; 9%).
  • Median tumor location was 9 cm from the anal verge (range, 3-15 cm).
  • Reasons for inability to complete TEM included narrow rectal lumen or contour of bony pelvis prohibiting passage of the operating proctoscope into the upper rectum and inability to maintain the proctoscope in the rectal lumen with carbon dioxide insufflation because of the distal location of the tumor.
  • Innovations used in the excision of rectal tumors via TEM included the use of the harmonic scalpel, closure of the rectal defect with an extracorporeal slip knot, and a hybrid approach incorporating TEM and traditional transanal techniques.

  • Benign small intestinal tumors (e.g., leiomyoma, lipoma, hamartoma, or desmoid tumor) usually are asymptomatic but may present with complications.
  • Primary malignancies of the small intestine, including adenocarcinoma, leiomyosarcoma, carcinoid, and lymphoma, are often symptomatic and may present with intestinal obstruction, jaundice, bleeding, or pain.
  • Because the small intestine is relatively inaccessible to routine endoscopy, diagnosis of small intestinal neoplasms is often delayed for months after onset of symptoms.
  • During last years the increase of small bowel endoscopy and other diagnostic tools allow earlier non-operative diagnosis.

  • [Title] The Ferguson Operating Anoscope as a minimally invasive option for the treatment of rectal tumors.
  • Transanal excision of rectal tumors may be performed using the Ferguson Operating Anoscope (FOA).
  • This retrospective case series evaluates the effectiveness of FOA for the excision of selected benign and malignant rectal tumors.
  • The office records of 97 patients with rectal tumors who underwent FOA transanal excision by a single surgeon from 1999 through 2009 were reviewed.
  • In the 97 patients evaluated, 99 FOA transanal excisions were performed for 39 adenocarcinomas, 55 benign tumors, and five carcinoid tumors.
  • The tumors were 0.5 to 13.5 cm in diameter and located an average of 6.9 cm (range, 1 to 15 cm) from the anal verge.
  • In early follow up of adenomas and favorable T1 carcinomas, FOA transanal excision has similar application, morbidity, and recurrence rates as reported for transanal endoscopic microsurgery for rectal tumors within 15 cm from the anal verge.
  • FOA may be considered a useful option for the minimally invasive treatment of rectal tumors.

  • [Title] Expression pattern and functional relevance of epidermal growth factor receptor and cyclooxygenase-2: novel chemotherapeutic targets in pancreatic endocrine tumors?
  • OBJECTIVES: Pancreatic endocrine tumors represent morphologically and biologically heterogeneous neoplasms.
  • Well-differentiated endocrine tumors (benign or of uncertain behavior) can be distinguished from well-differentiated and poorly differentiated endocrine carcinomas.
  • Although many well-differentiated endocrine carcinomas show rather low rates of tumor growth, more than two-thirds of pancreatic endocrine carcinomas display distant metastases at the time of diagnosis.
  • METHODS: The expression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 were investigated in 110 clinically and pathomorphologically well-characterized pancreatic endocrine tumors, using immunohistochemistry and immunoblot analyses.
  • Functional tests were performed using the human pancreas carcinoid cell line BON and the mouse insulinoma cell line beta-TC-3.
  • RESULTS: The expression of EGFR correlated significantly with the grade of malignancy, increasing from low rates of expression in benign tumors and tumors of uncertain behavior to high rates of expression in well- and poorly differentiated endocrine carcinomas.
  • The expression of COX-2 was independent of the malignant potential, but was more frequently expressed in primary tumors than in metastases.
  • The treatment of the human pancreas carcinoid cell line BON and the mouse insulinoma cell line beta-TC-3 with EGFR and COX-2 inhibitors (monotherapy and combined therapy) resulted in a significant, dose-dependent reduction of cell viability coupled with increased apoptosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that EGFR and COX-2 may represent useful additional chemotherapeutic targets in pancreatic endocrine tumors.

  • [Title] Malignancy-associated X chromosome allelic losses in foregut endocrine neoplasms: further evidence from lung tumors.
  • Association of X chromosome allelic losses with tumor malignancy has been identified in foregut but not in midgut endocrine neoplasms.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the association of deletions on X chromosome with malignancy in lung neuroendocrine tumors, another family of foregut neoplasms comprising four categories with increased malignancy: typical and atypical carcinoids, large cell neuroendocrine and small cell lung carcinomas.
  • In atypical carcinoids, the presence of losses was associated with larger tumor size, higher pT status and advanced stage.
  • No death occurred in atypical carcinoid patients without deletions on X chromosome, whereas all atypical carcinoid patients who had died from disease showed allelic losses.
  • In conclusion, X chromosome allelic losses, absent in benign 'typical' carcinoids, progressively increased in frequency from intermediate-grade 'atypical' carcinoids to high-grade large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas.
  • These results extend the association of deletions on X chromosome with malignancy, already demonstrated in other foregut endocrine neoplasms, to lung neuroendocrine tumors.
  • The absence of X chromosome allelic losses in small cell lung carcinomas underlines a striking difference from large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas, possibly linked to different pathogenetic mechanisms of these two highly aggressive neuroendocrine lung tumors.

  • [Title] Transanal endoscopic microsurgery resection of rectal tumors: outcomes and recommendations.
  • PURPOSE: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery provides a minimally invasive alternative to radical surgery for excision of benign and malignant rectal tumors.
  • We analyzed patient and operative factors, complications, and tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Two hundred sixty-nine patients underwent transanal endoscopic microsurgery for benign (n = 158) and malignant (n = 111) tumors.
  • Local recurrence rates for 121 benign and 83 malignant tumors were 5% for adenomas, 9.8% for T1 adenocarcinoma, 23.5% for T2 adenocarcinoma, 100% for T3 adenocarcinoma, and 0% for carcinoid tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery is a safe and effective method for excision of benign and malignant rectal tumors.
  • Transanal endoscopic microsurgery can be offered for (1) curative resection of benign tumors, carcinoid tumors, and select T1 adenocarcinomas, (2) histopathologic staging in indeterminate cases, and (3) palliative resection in patients medically unfit or unwilling to undergo radical resection.

  • Endocrine tumors (ET) of the digestive tract (formerly called neuroendocrine tumors) are rare.
  • They are classified into two principal types: gastrointestinal ET's (formerly called carcinoid tumors) which are the most common, and pancreaticoduodenal ET's.
  • The surgical goals are to: 1. prolong survival by resecting the primary tumor and any nodal or hepatic metastases, 2. control the symptoms related to hormonal secretion, 3. prevent or treat local complications.
  • The most common sites of gastrointestinal ET's ( carcinoids) are the appendix and the rectum; these are often small (<1 cm), benign, and discovered fortuitously at the time of appendectomy or colonoscopic removal.
  • The carcinoid syndrome (consisting of abdominal pain, flushing, diarrhea, hypertension, bronchospasm, and right sided cardiac vegetations) is caused by the hypersecretion of serotonin into the systemic circulation; it occurs in 10% of cases and is usually associated with hepatic metastases.
  • They are usually malignant and of advanced stage at diagnosis presenting as a palpable or obstructing mass or as liver metastases.
  • Insulinoma and gastrinoma (cause of the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome) are the most common functional ET's. 80% are sporadic; in these cases, tumor size, location, and malignant potential determine the type of resection which may vary from a simple enucleation to a formal pancreatectomy.
  • For gastrinoma with NEM-I, the benefit of surgical resection for tumors less than 2-3 cm in size is not clear.

  • [Title] Neuroendocrine tumors and somatostatin: imaging techniques.
  • Tumors and metastases bearing the somatostatin receptor subtypes 2 (SSTR2) or SSTR5 can be visualized in vivo after injection of radiolabeled octapeptide somatostatin analogs like 111In-pentetreotide.
  • The sensitivity of 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy for the detection of carcinoid tumors is 86-95%.
  • The sensitivity of 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy for the detection of gastrinomas, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-secreting tumors, and glucagonomas as well as clinically non-functioning lesions is 75-100%.
  • 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy generally has a lower detection rate for benign pheochromocytomas than 123I-MIBG scintigraphy, but it can have a complementary role for the staging of malignant pheochromocytomas.
  • 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy has been successful for the localization of extra-pituitary ACTH-secreting tumors and their metastases, and especially for occult tumors.

  • Well-differentiated neuroendocrine cell tumours (carcinoids, 47.6%) and benign non-endocrine cell tumours (adenomas, 45.2%) were most common with nearly equal frequency.
  • Carcinoid tumours occurred in younger patients (mean age 32 years), with a male-to-female ratio of 1.2:1.
  • A clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis was the most common reason for appendectomy (57.1%) and was histologically confirmed in 75% (18 of 24) of cases.
  • CONCLUSION: Appendiceal epithelial tumours are rare in our experience, and are represented principally by carcinoid tumours and adenomas.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Lung Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Bronchopulmonary carcinoids (BPC) are rare tumors of neuroendocrine origin.
  • These tumors are histologically classified into two distinctive forms, typical and the more malignant atypical BPC.
  • Average tumor-diameter was 2.5 cm (range 0.4-5.5), with typical histology in 54 (84%) and atypical in 10 patients (16%).
  • CONCLUSION: BPCs usually behave as benign neoplasms, with excellent long-term survival after surgical removal.
  • Therefore, histology (typical vs. atypical) can not be used with certainty to predict the clinical behaviour of these tumors.

  • Primary, secondary, benign or malignant tumorous diseases of the small intestine are rare.
  • This work should answer the question, whether there is a method of making the diagnosis earlier when the disease is limited and easy to cure.
  • METHODOLOGY: A retrospective study comprising 96 patients having undergone surgery for a small intestine tumor in our hospital from 1996 to 2005 is presented.
  • In the year 1998 we changed our philosophy in trying to directly detect the small intestine pathology and not making the diagnosis by the exclusion only.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To summarive the experience in diagnosis and treatment of primary small intestinal neoplasm.
  • METHODS: The data of 305 patients with pathologically confirmed primary small intestinal tumor collected from 6 hospitals around the Songhua River during the past 33 years were analyzed retrospectively.
  • RESULTS: There were 42 benign and 263 malignant tumors in this series with a ratio of 1: 6.26.
  • The 263 malignant tumors in this series consisted of 135 adenocarcinomas, 57 malignant stromal tumors, 37 malignant lymphomas, 20 carcinoids, and etc.
  • Chronic occult bleeding, gradual of body weight loss and mild abdominal pain (three obscurities) were the common clinical features and alerting massage of intestinal tumor.
  • Correct preoperative diagnostic rate was only 57.0% (174/305) due to difficulty in early diagnosis, which was 67.2% (92/137) in the duodenal tumors, and 51.9% (82/168) in the jejunoileal tumors.
  • All of the 42 benign tumors were resected completely.
  • For the 263 patients with malignant tumors, radical dissection was performed in 153, palliative resection in 34, and gut by-pass or biopsy in 76.
  • The median survival of the patients who underwent radical resection of their malignant tumors was 92 months, which was significantly higher than that of the other groups.
  • CONCLUSION: Early diagnosis of primary small intestinal tumors is difficult and with a preoperative misdiagnosis rate of 43.0%.
  • Total intestinal barium swallowing, endoscopy and superior mesenteric arteriography are three critical examinations for diagnosis and location.
  • The primary small intestinal tumor should be resected as early as possible if no distant metastasis is detected.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: The study comprises 107 patients presenting for TEM with benign disease and 32 patients with cancer.
  • Pathologic classification of the lesions after TEM was benign adenoma in 45%, adenoma with high-grade dysplasia (HGD) in 17%, cancer in 33%, and other in 4%.
  • Recurrence of cancers correlated with the depth of tumor invasion (P<.05).
  • Five-year neoplastic recurrence probabilities were 11% for benign adenomas, 35% for adenomas with HGD, and 20% for cancers (P=.31); invasive recurrence probabilities were 0% for benign adenomas, 15% for adenomas with HGD, and 13% for cancers (P<.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Close endoscopic follow-up is warranted after TEM for both benign and malignant disease, with special attention to lesions with HGD.

  • [Title] Clinical utility of telomerase for the diagnosis of malignant well-differentiated endocrine tumours.
  • OBJECTIVE: The distinction between benign and malignant well-differentiated endocrine tumours is hard to achieve.
  • The aim of the present study was to determine whether detection of telomerase or quantification of human telomerase reverse transcriptase protein subunit (hTERT) differ between benign and malignant endocrine tumours.
  • Based on clinical and histopathological criteria, tumours were categorized with the most recent WHO classification as 'benign' (n = 14), 'uncertain' (n = 5) or 'malignant' (n = 12) with (n = 7) or without (n = 5) metastasis after a mean follow-up of 40.4 +/- 25.8 months (4-122 months).
  • RESULTS: Telomerase activity was detected in 7 malignant and metastatic tumours, in 1 malignant tumour without metastases, in 1 uncertain tumour and in 1 benign tumour. hTERT mRNA levels were significantly higher in malignant endocrine tumours with or without metastases (P = 0.001) when compared to benign tumours.
  • The negative predictive value of hTERT mRNA quantification for the diagnosis of malignancy was 88.9%, whereas the positive predictive value was 68.7%.

  • OBJECTIVES: Non-germinal tumors account for less than 10% of all testicular tumors and consist of a wide array of benign and malignant lesions.
  • Due to their rarity, little is known about the appropriate management of malignant non-germinal testicular tumors.
  • METHODS: A literature review directed at the variety of non-germinal testicular tumors using the Medline/PubMed database was performed.
  • RESULTS: The majority of data on the treatment of non-germinal testicular tumors comes from case series and retrospective reviews; thus the management of many of these diseases is a matter of debate.
  • CONCLUSION: Non-germinal testicular tumors are a diverse group of rare lesions, and as a result their management is often difficult.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze MTA1 expression levels in a wide variety of human tumors.
  • RESULTS: Both analyses show that MTA1 is ubiquitously expressed in benign and malignant tumors.
  • The highest levels of MTA1 expression were observed in diffuse B-cell lymphoma (mean staining intensity, 3.9/4), basal cell carcinomas (3.7/4), and consistently in tumors of neuroendocrine descent such as paraganglioma (3.7/4) and carcinoid tumor (3.1/4).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study characterizes MTA1 expression for the first time across a broad spectrum of primary tumors, demonstrating expression in both benign and malignant neoplasms in addition to showing an association with neuroendocrine differentiation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation in prostate cancer (PCa), promoted by NE cell secreted products, appears to be associated with tumor progression, poor prognosis, and hormone-refractory disease.
  • We recently reported secretagogin, a hexa-EF-hand Ca(2+) binding protein, as a novel NE marker in carcinoid tumors of the lung and the gastrointestinal tract.
  • METHODS: We analyzed immunoreactivity for secretagogin, chromogranin A (CgA), neuron specific enolase (NSE), and synaptophysin (SYN) in consecutive sections from 87 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) benign hyperplastic (n = 10) and prostate adenocarcinoma (n = 77) specimens.
  • RESULTS: Secretagogin is cytoplasmic and nuclear expressed in NE and NE differentiated cells, and to a lesser extent in epithelial cells, in the benign prostate and prostate adenocarcinoma cells.
  • Secretagogin stained 82% (46/56) of benign and 71% (48/68) of prostate adenocarcinomas and co-localized with the NE markers CgA and NSE.
