MITA-ALBAN, Luis Carlos; CASCO-JARQUIN, Ana María; ALVAREZ-RAMIREZ, Rodrigo  and  RAMIREZ-CORRALES, José Alberto. Tumor neuroendocrino primario del hígado: histopatología e inmunohistoquímica de tres casos confirmados por autopsia. Acta méd. costarric [online]. 2003, vol.45, n.3, pp.113-116. ISSN 0001-6002.

A primary hepatic carcinoid tumor (PHCT) is an uncommon finding. There are few reports of primary hepatic carcinoid tumors, and less confirmed with a complete autopsy. From March 2000 to April 2001 we found 3 cases of PHCT in terminal phase with an atypical histologic pattern . Each case was positive to a wide variety of inmuno histochemical markers . All of them were confirmed by an autopsy. These neoplasies can be detected by reliable diagnostic tools such as the urinary excretion of 5 OH indolacetic acids.

Keywords : Hígado; carcinoide; neuroendocrino; inmunohistoquímica.
