Abstract

Three cases are described in which carcinoid tumors arose in previously established inflammatory bowel disease: two were in the ileum in cases of Crohn's disease, and one was in the rectum in a case of ulcerative colitis. Review of this association in the literature suggests that it may be more than fortuitous.
