We report 2 cases of ileocecal carcinoid with review of the literature recently reported in Japan. Both cases were diagnosed as carcinoid by colonoscopic biopsy after ileocecal tumors had been pointed out by computed tomography. We performed curative operation with lymph node dissection. Since multiple lymph node metastases were shown in both cases pathologically, they were closely followed after surgery, but no recurrence has been shown. Since SSTR2a stain was strongly positive in both cases, octreotide, the effectiveness of which was verified in the PROMID study might be administered if necessary. As ileocecal carcinoid has a tendency to metastasize to other organs, careful surveillance by colonoscopy and early detection are required. Furthermore, development of effective drugs following octreotide and further investigation including biological and histopathological analysis of neuroendocrine tumors including carcinoid are necessary.
