Abstract

Testicular carcinoid is a rare disease accounting for less than 1% of all testicular neoplasms. It rarely manifests symptoms of carcinoid syndrome. Recent reports have noted that only 1.1-3.1% of testicular carcinoid tumors are complicated by carcinoid syndrome. In general, large tumor size and thepresence of carcinoid syndrome are features associated with a malignant course. In the present case, pathological findings revealed pure carcinoid ofthe testis without metastasis. Moreover, watery diarrhea due to carcinoid syndrome disappeared and the serum serotonin level normalized following orchiectomy. The patient was followed up for 12 months with whole body computed tomography scan and assessment of serotonin levels. To date, there is no evidence of tumor recurrence. These findings suggest that monitoring serum serotonin levels may be useful as a marker during follow up of this type oftumor.
