Out of the total 1498 cases Squamous cell carcinoma was found to be the most prevailing with 388 cases (26.08%) followed by Small cell carcinoma (19.08%) Adenocarcinoma (18.48%) Non- small cell carcinoma (16.73%) Carcinoid
carcinoma (11.56%) undifferentiated carcinoma (4.23%) and large cell carcinoma (3.83%) as shown in Figure.1.
When Barbara Chapman died in St Kentigern Hospice, St Asaph, in 2011, pathologist Dr Mark Atkinson gave the cause of death as carcinoid

may occasionally present with symptoms of carcinoid
syndrome (flushing, tachycardia, and diarrhea).
tumour of the testis can be divided into 3 groups: primary carcinoid
tumour, metastasis from a different location, and carcinoid
tumour arising in a testicular teratoma.[sup.1] Cope was the first to report a testicular carcinoid
tumour, a mestastasis from an ileal carcinoid
tumour[sup.2] and Simon and colleagues reported the first primary testicular carcinoid
tumour in 1954.[sup.3] Although more than 60 cases have been reported to date, testicular carcinoid
tumour still remains a very rare disease; moreover, a primary testicular carcinoid
tumour with mature teratoma metastatic to the retroperitoneal lymph nodes is extremely rare.[sup.4] Because there was no effective treatment for the metastatic lesions, the prognosis for these cases have been disappointing.[sup.1]
(TC) comprise 1-2% and Atypical Carcinoid
(AC) comprise 0.1-0.2% of all pulmonary tumors, whereas small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (LCNECs) make up 20% and 1.6-3%, respectively
Discovered using Lexicon's unique approach to gene science, XERMELO (telotristat ethyl) is the first and only approved oral therapy for carcinoid
syndrome diarrhea in combination with somatostatin analog (SSA) therapy in adults inadequately controlled by SSAs.
It helps distinguish whether the etiology is central or peripheral.10 Past studies reveal that Inferior petrosal sinus sampling has a sensitivity of 96 - 100% in determining the case of elevated ACTH.11 Here we present a case of a 67 years old female with Cushing syndrome secondary to carcinoid
tumour of the lung in which BIPSS helped determine the cause of elevated serum cortisol levels.
The indications remain the same as those for the previous pre-filled syringe and include the treatment of adult patients with unresectable, well- or moderately-differentiated, locally advanced or metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors to improve progression-free survival; treatment of adults with carcinoid
syndrome; when used, it reduces the frequency of short-acting somatostatin analog rescue therapy; and the long-term treatment of patients with acromegaly who have had an inadequate response to surgery and/or radiotherapy, or for whom surgery and/or radiotherapy is not an option.
