A review of the current state of carcinoid tumors is presented, with special attention to the diagnostic, pronostic and new therapeutic aspects. In spite of being a well known entity the diagnosis is difficult being confirmed only by pathologic findings. The current medical therapy and surgical options are described. New surgical alternatives--organ cluster transplantation--seems to be the definitive solution in metastatic disease.
