The annual incidence of typical and atypical bronchial carcinoid tumors has been reported to be 0.6/100 000 and the overall age adjusted incidence for thymic carcinoids 0.01/100 000/year. Of all carcinoid tumors, 25% are located in the respiratory tract. The pulmonary carcinoids comprise 1–2% of all lung tumors. Both bronchial and thymic carcinoids may be part of multiple endocrine neoplasia type I syndrome (MEN-I).
