Carcinoid tumors of the female genital tract are an uncommon clinical finding. This study presents a case of typical carcinoid tumor of the uterine corpus in a 61-year-old woman. The tumor was a primary carcinoid tumor arising from the endometrium which showed the typical organoid patterns with a positive reaction for neuroendocrine markers. The patient was treated by a total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. No evidence for the carcinoid syndrome was noted. The carcinoid tumor recurred as a vaginal mass approximately six and a half years later. The patient died from a mechanical intestinal obstruction by the carcinoid tumor with distant metastasis approximately eight and a half years after operation of the endometrial primary tumor.
