Keywords Carcinoid; Neuroendocrine tumor; Diarrhea; Cost; Healthcare resource utilization
Core Tip Healthcare resource utilization patterns and costs accrued by carcinoid syndrome (CS) patients with and without diarrhea have not been well described. We examined newly diagnosed CS patients using MarketScan commercial claims data from 2003-2012 and found that non-infectious diarrhea (NID) is particularly burdensome and costly in CS patients. The adjusted proportions of patients with any and with CS-related hospitalizations were 9.7% and 6.8% higher in patients with NID than in those with no NID, respectively (P < 0.001). The NID group was also significantly more costly, with adjusted mean annual healthcare costs of $81610, compared to $51719 in the no NID group (P < 0.001).
