Low-grade neuroendocrine tumor of the corpus uteri is an extremely rare uterine cancer typically characterized by a well demarcated solid frequently pedunculated tumor originating from neuroendocrine cells scattered within the endometrium often associated with ectopic hormone production. Patients usually present with vaginal bleeding or discharge and a pelvic mass with a polypoid tumor sometimes protruding through the cervical canal. Symptoms related to ectopic hormone production (flushing sweating diarrhea bronchospasm) may also develop.
