Neuroendocrine tumors are malignancis associated or not with hormonal changes, presenting indolently. It has a variable incidence according to the type of study, but usually 0,28-0,8:100.000  is observed, but it may be even rarer depending on its location. The aim of this study is to report a rare case of neuroendocrine tumor of the small intestine diagnosed by unusual methods.
