Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.
Aim(s): Analysis of the clinical course of five patients with this association.
Materials and methods: Analysis of five cases of patients with this association. All patients had a carcinoid and another carcinoma (colon 3; lung 1; unknown primary 1).
