Bronchial carcinoid tumors are very rare pulmonary neoplasms. They usually present with pulmonary symptoms or paraneoplastic syndromes. Typical (well-differentiated) tumors are usually indolent with survival exceeding 90% after resection. Atypical carcinoids have a worse prognosis. They are much more likely to recur locally or to have distant metastases. This case report describes a patient who presented with abdominal pain and hepatic lesions who was subsequently diagnosed to have bronchial carcinoid.
