BACKGROUND Carcinoid tumors are neoplasms of neuroendocrine origin that rarely affect the genital tract. CASE A 75-year-old woman underwent hysterectomy and bilateral adnexectomy due to vaginal bleeding and uterine pathology (leiomyoma, cervical low grade squamous intraepithelial lesions and endometrial hyperplasia on ultrasound). Pathologic examination of the specimen disclosed a uterine corpus carcinoid tumor. The patient had been taking tamoxifen for adjuvant treatment of breast cancer… 
Primary Carcinoid Tumor of the Uterine Corpus-A Case Report-Corresponding
A case of typical carcinoid tumor of the uterine corpus in a 61-year-old woman which showed the typical organoid patterns with a positive reaction for neuroendocrine markers is presented.
Primary Clear Cell Carcinoid Tumors of the Vulva
Primary clear cell carcinoid tumors of the vulva need to be considered in the differential diagnosis of vulvar masses with clear cell features and immunohistochemistry plays an important role in the diagnosis of these lesions.
Neuroendocrine Differentiation in Endometrial Tumors: A Practical Diagnostic Approach
This review will summarize what is known and what remains unanswered in this spectrum of endometrial cancers and will provide a practical approach to diagnosis.
Neuroendocrine tumors of the gynecologic tract: select topics.
In this review, select neuroendocrine tumors of the gynecologic tract are covered and in keeping with the lung, proliferative rate is assessed based on mitotic index rather than Ki-67 staining.
Combined large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium with pagetoid spread.
This work reports the first case, to the authors' knowledge, of combined large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium, with an unusual pagetoid spread of the neuro endocrine component into normal endometrial and endocervical glands.

The classification and clinicopathologic characteristics of neuro endocrine tumors of the female reproductive tract are described and differential diagnoses are discussed, especially for non-neuroendocrine tumors showing high-grade nuclei with neuroendocrine differentiation.
Pathology of Neuroendocrine Tumours of the Female Genital Tract
In the endometrium and cervix, high-grade neoplasms are much more prevalent than low-grade and are more common in the cervix than the corpus and the term carcinoid tumour is still used in WHO 2014.

Diffuse infiltrating neuroendocrine tumor of the uterus: MRI appearance
MRI demonstrated diffuse enlargement of the uterus without a discrete mass and Histologically, tumor cells diffusely infiltrated the myometrium as well.
