Introduction: Herein we present two cases of neuroendocrine tumours (NET)with atypical presentations.
Materials and methods: Case 1:A 87 year-old woman with a growing hypervascular cutaneous lesion in the left scapula was evaluated by Dermatology. The lesion was excised, and histopathology showed a NET metastasis. The patient had no carcinoid syndrome. An abdominal CT scan showed a nodular lesion in the proximal small intestine with exuberant desmoplastic reaction. Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy confirmed overexpression in this lesion and no evidence of distant metastasis. The patient underwent palliative surgery. The surgical specimen confirmed a low-grade (G1) NET (Ki67 1%).
