Introduction: Metastatic lesions to the pancreas are rare.
Aim(s): To present a case of a ileal carcinoid tumor with a synchronous pancreatic metastasis.
Materials and methods: A 68-year-old male patient was admitted to our Clinic in 2008 for diarrhoea and flushing. Urinary serotonin (2 x), 5HIAA (5 x) and Chromogranin A (2,5 x) were increased. An Indium-111-Octreotide scan showed a focal uptake in the pancreatic head and a slight uptake in the lower abdomen. An abdominal CT scan showed a dishomogeneous pancreatic head and a hypervascular ileal lesion. The pancreatic lesion was confirmed by MRI and resulted slightly hypermetabolic with 18FGD-PET (SUV max 2.15).
