Two cases of primary ovarian carcinoid tumor, which representing 0.32% (2/620) of ovarian germ cell tumors during a study period of 16 years, were reported. Case one was a 51-old woman who presented with irregular menstruation and hot flush. A right ovarian tumor was found at laparotomy, and the pathology revealed a strumal carcinoid tumor in a dermoid cyst. Case two was a 25-year-old woman who had suffered from marked constipation for four years. A huge pelvic tumor was palpable at physical examination. A left ovarian tumor with low resistance index of tumor flow ( <0.4) was found by ultrasound. Tumor markers including alpha -fetoprotein, beta- human chorionic gonadotropin, CA-125, and lactic dehydrogenase were all within the normal limits. Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level was elevated, however. Left salpingo-oophorectomy were performed, and the pathology of the ovary showed a pure carcinoid tumor. Constipation disappeared and CEA returned to the normal ranges after surgery.
