Abstract

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms made of cells with both neural and endocrinal properties. Gastrointestinal NETs are very rare, and among them, duodenal NETs are exceedingly rare. Though duodenal NETs frequently metastasize to the liver, will not cause severe functional disturbance. This case is a very rare presentation of a 49 year old female in Acute liver failure caused by liver metastasis of a poorly differentiated ampullary NET.
