    Abstract

    Carcinoid tumour accounts for one per cent of all gastrointestinal neoplasms and has been reported in 0.5% of appendicectomy specimens. Local gastrointestinal complications occur infrequently and we report a case of repeated and massive gastrointestinal haemorrhage from a non-metabolically active carcinoid tumour of the distal ileum diagnosed by colonoscopy.
