Carcinoid tumours are a unique and relatively uncommon subset of neuroendocrine tumours. We present a 70-year-old female with end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with a left parotid gland lump associated with facial discomfort. She was diagnosed with bronchial carcinoid tumour a year prior to this presentation. The parotid lump was confirmed to be a carcinoid tumour of the parotid gland on cytology. This unique case is presented with discussion on the management of this condition together with literature review.
