Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors are the most common type of neuroendocrine tumors and
small bowel neoplasms. The clinical presentation varies from asymptomatic incidentally detected
localized lesions to lethal metastatic disease with carcinoid syndrome. A 50 year old lady presented
with chief complaints of lump in upper abdomen associated with dull aching pain since 3 months.
CECT scan was suggestive of a probable gastrointestinal stromal tumor for which patient underwent
elective laparotomy. Postoperatively on the basis of histopathology a diagnosis of neuroendocrine
tumor was made and confirmed with immunohistochemistry. Approximately 90% of duodenal
NET’s are not associated with clinical syndrome. It is a rare diagnosis with incidence of 0.5/100,000.
Patients with well differentiated tumors diagnosed in early stage have a good prognosis with an 85%
overall 5 year survival rate.
