Abstract. – The authors report a case of cecal malignant carcinoid, diagnosticated in a 68 years old male patient. Carcinoid tumours are rare neoplasm and their behaviour seems to change with the localization. Cecal carcinoid represents only 2-3% of gastrointestinal carcinoid. Some times it is discovered incidentally at autopsy, surgery or endoscopy. The aim of this paper has been to review, in literature, the frequency, treatment and prognosis of this neoplasm.
