Abstract :

Pure large neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the gallbladder is so rare that until now only 10 cases have been described. Herein we aimed to report a new case treated in the Salah Azaiez National Cancer Institute in Tunisia. We also reviewed the clinical features of all cases reported so far. We reported the case of a 67 years old men that had pure locally advanced LCNEC of the gallbladder, with posterior metastatic lymphadenopathy. He underwent a cholecystectomy followed by 6 cycles of Cisplatin and Etoposide chemotherapy, 3 cycles of gemcitabine and Capecitabine chemotherapy and a third line of metronomic Cyclophosphamide.
