Carcinoid tumors belong to the family of neuroendocrine tumors. They are rare, with an incidence of 1.2-2.1/100,000 population, being neither completely malignant nor completely benign.
They are slow growing malignancies, and radical surgery represent the primary choice of treatment. We present a case report of a patient with neuroendocrine carcinoma of duodenum in which a conservative surgery was performed.
