Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma in the ampulla of Vater is a rare disease and there have only been three cases reported in Korea. In these three cases, the patients had symptoms of abdominal pain and jaundice. A biopsy via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography confirmed a small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma; thus, each patient underwent surgical treatment. Recently, we experienced a case of small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma in an asymptomatic patient. An ulcerative lesion was identified during screening gastroduodenoscopy. Here, we report this case and review the relevant literature.
Key Words: Neuroendocrine carcinoma; Ampulla of Vater; Duodenoscopy
