Abstract

Carcinoid tumors are slow-growing tumors originating in the neuroendocrine cells, and occur most frequently within the gastrointestinal tract. Although the liver is the most common site for metastatic carcinoid tumors, primary hepatic carcinoid tumors are exceedingly rare and reports of the imaging findings have been very scarce. We herein report imaging findings with an emphasis on magnetic resonance imaging in two cases of primary hepatic carcinoid tumors. In both cases, the tumors showed cystic areas with hemorrhagic components and early enhanced solid areas.
