Carcinoid tumors are rare, slow-growing neoplasms that display neuroendocrine properties. The term carcinoid is generally applied to well-differentiated neoplasms, while neuroendocrine carcinoma is reserved only for poorly differentiated lesions. They can be found throughout the different regions of the gastrointestinal system, although they have predilection for the ileum.
