We present the case of a female patient admitted for an abdominal tumoral mass corresponding to large liver metastases. The abdominal ultrasonography detected a solid intestinal tumor. The capsule endoscopy showed a vegetative tumor on the terminal ileum. After intestinal and partial liver resection, the histologic examination identified a neuroendocrine tumor. The patient responded incompletely to standard chemotherapy. In the presence of large hypoechoic liver metastases, a neuroendocrine tumor should be suspected.
