Abstract

We have reviewed all cases of goblet cell carcinoid in the Department of Pathology, Edinburgh University. Of the 10 cases identified, two had died as a result of the tumour. This would suggest a poorer prognosis than is generally recognized. Those patients who subsequently had progression of their disease were not predicted by histological criteria. Because of the unpredictable behaviour of these tumours we recommend that such patients should correctly be treated by a right hemicolectomy.
