The term carcinoid syndrome stands for a wide group of endocrine symptoms related to the presence of disseminated neuroendocrine cancer, such as diarrhea, flushes, and abdominal pain; infrequently wheezing and bronchial asthma; and rarely skin manifestations due to secretion of a variety of biogenic amines and peptides.1 We report herein a rare case of carcinoid syndrome with angioedema and urticaria as the first symptoms of liver metastases of neuroendocrine cancer.
