Abstract

Duodenal carcinoid tumors are rare. We report two patients with isolated duodenal carcinoid tumors diagnosed accidentally by endoscopy, who were not operated, and were followed for more than 2 yr without evidence of metastasis. Because duodenal carcinoid tumors are slow growing and have a relative benign course, a conservative approach is recommended in old patients with relative contraindications to surgery.
