The article presents the terminal ileum featured with necrotising enteritis similar to ischemic damage. The patient has undergone surgery for laparoscopic ileocoecal resection and was found with partially calcified neuroendocrine carcinoma. It says that the neuroendocrine tumour (NET) can be identified as a pT3pN1Gi malignancy, and suggests that inflammatory changes in the small intestine should be included as its additional symptom.
