Neuroendocrine tumors of the small bowel are rare malignancies that often occur in the case of bowel obstruction or intestinal bleeding. The present case is a 46-year-old man who underwent emergency surgery for obstruction due to a rare presentation of multiple neuroendocrine lesions located in an intestinal loop. Pathology showed 15 NETs (grade 1) between 4 and 15 mm diameter with positive lymph nodes and liver metastases already detected by the preoperative CT scan.
