INTRODUCTION: Bronchial carcinoid tumors are uncommon group of pulmonary neoplasms that are characterized by neuroendocrine differentiation and relatively indolent clinical behavior. Although referred to as bronchial adenoma, this tumor is recognized as malignant neoplasm because of its potential to metastasize. These tumors are thought to be derived from peptide and amine producing neuroendocrine cells that have migrated from the embryological neural crest. Carcinoid can arise at a number of sites of the body including thymus, GI tract, lungs and ovary but the most common site is the GI tract. Bronchial carcinoid accounts approximately 1-2% in adults but may be a most common primary neoplasm in children typically presenting in late adulthood.
