Primary hepatic neuroendocrine tumors (PHNETs) are infrequent and rarely cause carcinoid syndrome unlike metastatic deposits in the liver from primary neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in other parts of the gastrointestinal system. There are only about 61 cases of PHNET reported in the literature. We present a case of a 30-year-old woman with a PHNET in the left lobe of the liver for which a lobectomy was successfully done. This case was subjected to a thorough workup to exclude an occult extra hepatic NET.
