Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of primary renal carcinoid tumor. Only 13 prior cases are documented in the literature. The tumor fulfilled both histologic and immunochemical criteria for carcinoid. In addition, we employed new diagnostic modalities (i.e., magnetic resonance imaging and chromogranin-A levels) not used in prior published reports. A review of the literature is presented.
