Abstract

The clinical and pathological features of four cases of duodenal carcinoid tumour are presented. All four tumours showed a glandular pattern, and in three cases this was associated with psammoma bodies. In three tumours somatostatin was identified by immunocytochemistry in most tumour cells. In two cases the duodenal tumours were associated with von Recklinghausen's disease and phaeochromocytoma. The importance of these unusual features is discussed, and it is suggested that these glandular carcinoids are a specific subgroup of endocrine cell tumours which appear to have potentially important clinical and pathological associations.
