Carcinoid tumours are slow-growing tumours, derived from enterochromaffin (EC) cells located in the crypts of LieberkA1/4hn, a part of neuroendocrine system. Gastrointestinal system (70%) is most commonly involved, followed by pulmonary tract (25%).1 Various bioactive amines and peptides are secreted by these tumours, including serotonin, 5-hydroxytryptophan, calcitonin, somatostatin, glucagon etc.

It is, however, necessary to mention that, as is indicated above, the immune system has a complex relationship with the neuroendocrine system and thus the indirect effects associated with the interaction between the host and the microorganism may be mediated not only by changes in the immune system but also through the modulation of other regulatory mechanisms that affect the body's immune defense.
