Carcinoid tumors of the duodenum are infrequent, represent 2.0-3.0% of all gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors in western countries and 14.8% of those in Japan. Small carcinoid tumors of the duodenum are often asymptomatic, discovered endoscopically, Duodenal carcinoid tumors have been treated by surgical resection or endoscopic resection with strip biopsy or polypectomy. We experience a case of carcinoid tumor of duodenum in 49 years woman. Endoscopic examination, 0.7 cm sized polypoid mass with central depression was noted on duodenal bulb area.
