Abstract: Carcinoid tumours of the liver are predominantly metastases from the gastrointestinal tract. Primary hepatic carcinoids are extremely rare.In contrast to metastases, primary hepatic carcinoids are usually solitary and resectable. It is important that these tumours are differentiated from metastases. Complete surgical resection should be contemplated and is generally curative.
