Abstract
Carcinoid tumors are enigmatic slow growing malignancies which
occur most frequently (74%) in the gastrointestinal tract. Rectal carcinoids comprise
12.6% of all carcinoid tumors and represent the third largest group of the
gut carcinoids. The initial symptoms of carcinoid may be nonspecific when present
and symptoms are dependent on the location and extent of the tumor. The majority
of patients with rectal carcinoid tumors are asymptomatic, and the tumor is
after diagnosed incidentally at endoscopy, surgery, or autopsy. Rectal carcinoid
tumors are generally small and rarely metastatic and it is known that about 15%
of these tumors frequently metastasize to distant organs (especially, liver) when
its size is larger than 2 cm. Endoscopic resection may be the best treatment for
small tumors. Recently, we experienced two cases of rectal carcinoid tumors which
were treated by endoscopic polypectomy, therefore, the cases are presented in this
paper with a relevant literature review.
