Abstract

Carcinoid tumors of ampulla are rare clinical entities. They form 0.35% of all the gastrointestinal carcinoids. So far, only 109 cases have been reported in the literature, mostly as individual case reports. Since the metastatic potential and the tumor size have no correlation, unlike in duodenal carcinoids, pancreatoduodenectomy is considered the treatment of choice. Here we present a case of carcinoid of ampulla presenting to our department.
