Small bowel carcinoid tumor
The small bowel is one of the most (if not the most) location for carcinoid tumors. Only a minority (<10%) present with carcinoid syndrome. In the abdomen, they can present with a strong desmoplastic reaction with angulation of the bowel (lacking in this case). Octreotide scanning can be useful because uptake, along with typical imaging features, strongly suggest the diagnosis.
