ABSTRACT: Progress in the diagnostics and therapy of gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN), the published results of new randomised clinical trials, and the new guidelines issued by the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (ENETS) have led the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumours to update the 2013 guidelines regarding management of these neoplasms. We present the general recommendations for the management of NENs, developed by experts during the Third Round Table Conference - Diagnostics and therapy of gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms: Polish recommendations in view of current European recommenda-tions, which took place in December 2016 in Żelechów near Warsaw. Drawing from the extensive experience of centres dealing with this type of neoplasms, we hope that we have managed to develop the optimal management system, applying the most recent achievements in the field of medicine, for these patients, and that it can be implemented effectively in Poland. These management guidelines have been arranged in the following order: gastric and duodenal NENs (including gastrinoma); pancreatic NENs; NENs of the small intestine and appendix, and colorectal NENs.

ABSTRACT: This article presents updated diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for the management of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNEN), proposed by the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumours. The guidelines contain new data received in the years 2013-2016, which confirm previous recommendations, and have led to modification of previous guidelines or have resulted in the formulation of new guidelines. Biochemical and imaging (anatomical and functional) tests are of great importance in diagnostics, as well as histopathological diagnosis to determine the management of PNEN patients, but they must be confirmed by an immunohistochemical examination. PNEN therapy requires collaboration among the members a multidisciplinary team of specialists experienced in the management of these neoplasms. Surgery is the basic form of treatment in many cases. Further therapy requires a multidirectional procedure; therefore, the rules of biotherapy, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, molecular targeted therapy, and chemotherapy are discussed.

ABSTRACT: This paper presents the updated Polish Neuroendocrine Tumour Network expert panel recommendations on the management of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) of the stomach and duodenum, including gastrinoma. The recommendations discuss the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical presentation of these tumours as well as their diagnosis, including biochemical, histopathological, and localisation diagnoses. The principles of treatment are discussed, including endoscopic, surgical, pharmacological, and radionuclide treatments. Finally, there are also recommendations on patient monitoring.

ABSTRACT: Although insulinoma constitutes almost 90% of neuroendocrine tumors localized in the pancreas, it is a rare disease. Quite commonly prior to the diagnosis there is a history of several years and misdiagnosis as neurological or cardiological disease is not infrequent. Patient, 22 years old, since 7 years experiencing multiple incidents of neuroglycopenia with concurrent hyperadrenergic reaction. Consciousness disturbances and muscle tremor together with feeling of hunger and tachycardia occurred mainly in the morning hours, or after physical exercise, and subsided after glucose intake. Increase in body weight, typical for insulinoma, was also observed. The patient was hospitalized twice in Pediatric Department and although hypoglycemia was observed, no additional testing was performed to exclude insulinoma; reported symptoms and abnormalities in EEG recording after provocation resulted in diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy. During hospitalization in the Department of Endocrinology fasting test was performed, which revealed inadequately high insulin level with glucose level of 41 mg% and signs of neuroglycopenia. The image of pancreas was normal in the acquired abdominal ultrasound and in CT a tumor was found in the tail of pancreas. The patient underwent laparoscopic operation and the clinical diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology. Antiepileptic drugs were discontinued. Total remission of symptoms was achieved. The presented case demonstrates the difficulties in correct interpretation of reported symptoms, while the results of biochemical tests and imaging studies point precisely to the diagnosis. Focal neurological signs resulting from multiple episodes of hypoglycemia may lead to misdiagnosis and treatment of epilepsia.

ABSTRACT: Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) are rare neoplasms of this organ. The majority of PETs are tumors without hormonal activity. In this publication, we present the diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for the management of these tumors proposed by the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumors. These guidelines refer to biochemical and location diagnostics, including scintygraphy of somatostatin receptors, endoscopic ultrasonography and other anatomical and functional imaging methods. High importance is attached to correct histopathological diagnosis which determines further management of patients with PETs. Antitumor therapy requires multidirectional procedure, and therefore the rules of surgical treatment, biotherapy, chemotherapy and peptide receptor radionuclide therapy are discussed.
