Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carcinoid of the trachea is an extremely rare entity with very few cases reported in literature. The standard of treatment is complete surgical excision with limited role for chemotherapy and also a limited role for radiotherapy as this type of tumour has very low metastatic potential. We describe a case of a tracheal carcinoid which was surgically unresectable, but which showed excellent response to combined modality treatment with sequential multi-agent chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy with complete resolution of disease.
