    Abstract

    We report a 31-year-old Chinese man with bronchial carcinoid tumour and bilateral phaeochromocytoma. His sister also gave a history of bilateral carotid body paraganglioma. This case demonstrates the importance of screening for other endocrine disorders in patients with foregut carcinoid tumours.
