Small Bowel Obstruction Caused by Carciniod Tumor in Ileum

Author(s): Nor Abdi Yasin, Ikram Abdikarim Ibrahim MD

Carcinoid tumor is one of the rare gastrointestinal tumors. We present here; a case of 54 years old woman with complete stricture in the Small Bowel at the ileum level, caused by a carcinoid tumour who underwent a laparotomy. After resection of the tissue, histopathology was confirmed carcinoid tumor as the casual stricture. A such a typical presentation in patients not having a mass in radiological studies except signs and symptoms of bowel obstruction should raise suspicion of a carcinoid tumor.
