Neuroendocrine tumors NETs are found throughout the intestinal tract, the appendix and terminal ileum being the most common locations, and are classified by site of origin and by degree of differentiation, with well-differentiated lesions representing those tumors formerly referred to as carcinoid tumors.
We report the clinical, serological and histological diagnosis of a years-old male patient with congestive heart failure secondary to carcinoid heart disease in the context of liver metastases of an ileum carcinoid tumor. Metastatic carcinoid tumor presenting as right sided heart failure.

The ultimate goal is to identify and validate targets for combination therapy with radiation neuroendocrine cancer immunotherapy immunotherapy in preclinical studies, and in parallel conduct studies of biomarkers of response in correlative clinical studies. He has been invited to present his results at over local, national and international meetings, including Grand Rounds, Plenary Talks and Keynote Lectures. Debate: Is there a role for surgical management of metastatic neuroendocrine cancer?
