Purpose null Pituitary metastases (PM) are uncommon findings and are mainly derived from breast and lung cancers. No extensive review of PM from neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) is on record. Here we describe a clinical case of PM from pancreatic NEN and review the clinical features of PM from NENs reported in the literature. null Methods null A case of PM from a pancreatic NEN followed at our institution is described. We also reviewed the 43 cases of PM from NENs reported in the literature. null...

PURPOSE Despite a good prognosis, thyroid cancer (TC) survivors often report psychological distress and decreased quality of life. This longitudinal study aims to evaluate TC survivors' levels of distress, anxiety, depression and unmet needs, checking potential life events. METHODS Distress Thermometer, Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale, Supportive Care Need Survey (short form) and Interview for Recent Life Events were administered to 73 TC survivors (T0) and 44 of them were re-tested one year l...

Background Liver metastases (LMs) from thyroid cancer (TC) are relatively uncommon in clinical practice and their management is challenging. Interventional radiology loco-regional treatments (LRTs), including radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE), have been successfully employed to treat LMs from various types of cancer. Methods We analyzed the role of LRTs in the management of unresectable LMs from differentiated and medullary TCs performed at our institution...

INTRODUCTION: The organization of the healthcare system has significantly changed after the recent COVID-19 outbreak, with a negative impact on the management of oncological patients. The present survey reports data collected by the Italian Association for Neuroendocrine Tumors on the management of patients with neuroendocrine neoplasia (NEN) during the pandemic dissemination. METHODS: A survey with 57 questions was sent to NEN-dedicated Italian centers regarding the management of patients in th...

Bone represents the second most common site of distant metastases in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The clinical course of DTC patients with bone metastases (BM) is quite heterogeneous, but generally associated with low survival rates. Skeletal-related events might be a serious complication of BM, resulting in high morbidity and impaired quality of life. To achieve disease control and symptoms relief, multimodal treatment is generally required: radioiodine therapy, local procedures-includi...

BACKGROUND One of the most widely used risk stratification systems for estimating individual patients' risk of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) persistence or recurrence is proposed by the American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines. The 2015 revision, that has increased the number of patients considered at low or intermediate risk, has been validated in several retrospective, single referral-center studies. The aims of this study were to evaluate the real-world performance of the 2015 ATA ...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is commonly found in cancer patients. The relationship between DM and cancer appears to be bidirectional: DM has been associated with an increased risk of developing several types of cancer while also cancer treatments, through the induction of metabolic derangements, can facilitate the onset of DM, or worsen glucose control. In particular, novel antineoplastic treatments such as immunotherapy and targeted therapies have been associated with both acute and long-term metabo...
