Carcinoid tumours are the rare tumours arising from neuroendocrine cells. These tumours are relatively slow growing and may be clinically apparent only after a metastatic spread or evidence of Carcinoid syndrome. Rarely, these tumours may cause ischaemic necrosis in the non-neoplastic small intestine due to elastic vascular sclerosis of the mesenteric vessels. Here, authors present a case of metastatic mesenteric Carcinoid associated with ischaemic necrosis of the ileum.
