Neuroendocrine neoplasm of the duodenum constitutes 5% of all GI tract carcinoids. Among these, primary involvement of the ampulla of Vater is rare. They are slow growing and present with non-specific symptoms. Carcinoids of the ampulla of Vater usually do not present with carcinoid syndrome; and may be treated with wide local resection because of its low malignant potential.
