Abstract

Two cases of ampullary carcinoid tumor are reported. These tumors are among the most rare of GI tract carcinoids and appear to have a distinct presentation and biological behavior from carcinoids arising in the duodenum. The existing literature is reviewed with attention to the implications for surgical management of this rare disease.
