Carcinoids arise from cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system and can arise almost anywhere within the gastrointestinal tract. Carcinoids belong to group of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GI NETs).About 4 percent of all gastrointestinal carcinoids occur in the duodenum. This is a case report of 65yrs old man who presented with dyspeptic symptoms and weight loss. CECT abdomen revealed an intensely enhancing lesion in junction of second and third part of duodenum and endoscopy showed a globular swelling with umblication suggestive of duodenal carcinoid which was confirmed histologically and was successfully treated by surgicalexcision.
