Neurohormonal peptides in primary ovarian carcinoids. An immunohistochemical study

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Although the primary ovarian carcinoid does not give rise to symptoms characteristic of an endocrine tumor (except the one-third with the classical carcinoid syndrome), they still have the capacity to produce one or several peptide hormones. The spectrum of the peptide hormones demonstrated is about the same as for carcinoids of the 'hind gut' type, indicating a common origin of the two tumors.
