Carcinoid tumours are rare neuroendocrine tumours causing a spectrum of symptoms ranging from chronic intestinal obstruction to systemic symptoms like sweating, diarrhoea and right side heart failure. We present here the case history of a male patient aged forty with a carcinoid tumour in the distal small intestine presenting with chronic intermittent intestinal obstruction and no systemic symptoms and metastasis. This case is presented for its rarity.
