Abstract

A neuroendocrine tumour of the sphenoid sinus and nasopharynx: a case report. It is rare for neuroendocrine tumours to originate in the sphenoid sinus and the nasopharynx. Neuroendocrine tumours can be classified into typical carcinoids, atypical carcinoids and small cell neuroendocrine carcinomas. Here we report the case of a 48-year-old man with a typical carcinoid tumour of the nasopharynx and sphenoid sinus. This is a very rare diagnosis, and only a few cases of a typical carcinoid in this region have been described in the literature.
