The case of a 41 year old woman has been reported, whose "flush" syndrome was caused by a carcinoid tumor originated from the jejunum. The patient's father had to be operated for intestinal carcinoid tumor several times. The occurrence of different forms of carcinoid tumors, especially in the gastrointestinal tract, has been discussed in connection with the diagnostic approaches and therapeutical possibilities. The authors considered the case interesting for publications, because carcinoid is a rather rare tumor, and one cannot find its familiar occurrence in the available literature.
