We present a case of Stage I ovarian carcinoid tumor recurrent in the peritoneal cavity and review the pertinent literature concerning the management of this disease. Based on the data in the gynecologic and general surgery literature, it appears that primary complete cytoreductive surgery usually affords a high cure rate. Reexploration and attempt at complete resection of this slow-growing tumor appears to provide significant and prolonged palliation and is indicated for recurrent disease.
