Nonvalvular myocardial involvement in metastatic carcinoid disease.

Author information

  • 1Regional Cardiac Centre, Victoria Hospital, Blackpool.

Abstract

A patient with the unusual post mortem finding of myocardial metastatic carcinoid tumour without classical valvular or endocardial carcinoid disease is described. This rare occurrence may represent an aggressive type of carcinoid tumour, with metastatic disease occurring before the development of classical fibrous valvular and endocardial pathology.
