Introduction: Typical and atypical bronchial carcinoids are neuroendocrine tumors of the lung. Family lung carcinoid tumors are rare and have been described as very rarely in literature.
Aim(s): We report a case of 36 years old man, whose sister was treating for a metastatic bronchial carcinoid tumor,
Materials and methods: He was suffering for a recurrent pneumonitis. A CT scan was performed and showed a focus of atelectasis without any lesions. A vascular tumor blocking the entrance of the right superior lobar bronchus was found at bronchoscopy with biopsy which showed carcinoid neuroendocrin tumor. The CT scan of abdomen and pelvis were returned without particularity. The patient underwent a lobectomy with lymphadenectomy. Histopathology confirmed the diagnostic of an atypical carcinoid tumor with 9 mitoses /2 mm² without necrosis and without mediastinal ganglion invasion. Favorable evolution has been achieved with disappearance of the bronchial symptoms.No adjuvant treatment has been proposed. The patient is regularly followed in consultation.
