Abstract

Carcinoid tumors are uncommon in children. Kidneys are rarely involved as they do not possess neuro-endocrine cells. Work up of painless hematuria after abdominal trauma in a 10-year-old boy revealed primary carcinoid tumors with metastasis to both kidneys. We were unable to find any previous reports of renal involvement by carcinoid tumor in children.
