Goblet cell carcinoids (GCC) are extremelyrare neuroendocrine tumours, and characterised by their unique combination of two types of cancer cells ÃÂ¢ÃÂ" neuroendocrine (carcinoid) and epithelial (adeno-carcinoma). In spite of the fact that GCC is regarded as Neuro-Endocrine Tumour (NET), it does not illicit carcinoid syndrome. GCC usually arises in the appendix and accounting for less than 14% of all appendiceal tumours.Primary extra-appendiceal GCC have been reported as stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum. The paper presents a rare case of GCC of the ascending colon in a 57-year-old male.

A tumor composed of spindle cells with a rich vascular network, which apparently arises from pericytes, cells of smooth muscle origin that lie around small vessels. Benign and malignant hemangiopericytomas exist, and the rarity of these lesions has led to considerable confusion in distinguishing between benign and malignant variants.

A symptom complex associated with CARCINOID TUMOR and characterized by attacks of severe flushing of the skin, diarrheal watery stools, bronchoconstriction, sudden drops in blood pressure, edema, and ascites. The carcinoid tumors are usually located in the gastrointestinal tract and metastasize to the liver. Symptoms are caused by tumor secretion of serotonin, prostaglandins, and other biologically active substances. Cardiac manifestations constitute CARCINOID HEART DISEASE. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
