It is possible that carcinoids present themselves by a surgical emergency, without a <<classic syndrome>>. For these reasons, whenever a rational treatment is requested, an intraoperative diagnosis should be performed. In fact these neoplasms--owing to a less intense aggressiveness--present more indications to undergo surgery. In fact the authors report a case of caecum carcinoid characterized by the lack of typical symptoms of the homonymous syndrome. Urgent surgery was performed because of intestinal occlusion; the ileocaecal valve involvement caused the necessity of a large ileocolic resection with a L-L ileo-transverse anastomosis. The diagnosis of carcinoid was revealed only by the definitive histopathological examination.
