PMID:  4076216     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Carcinoid heart disease secondary to ovarian carcinoid is a rare finding, with only 12 cases reported in the literature to date. Most ovarian carcinoids arise from ovarian cysts or teratomata, the 'pure' carcinoid being exceedingly rare. We present a case of carcinoid syndrome with tricuspid valve involvement in a patient with 'pure' ovarian carcinoid.
