    Backgroung: Carcinoids or neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are derived from diffuse neuroendocrine system, which is made up of peptide and amine-producing cells with different hormone profiles depending on their site of origin. Methodology: These are metastasizing; highly aggravating tumors are associated with characinoid syndrome. They are also named after the hormones they produce. Results: A 73-year-old female patient reported with abdominal pain weight loss and vomiting for about 1½ months. Conclusion: On further investigations showed focal lesions in liver, indicating metastasis of a NET origin.
