Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the gallbladder is a rare, aggressive malignancy that does not yet have a standard treatment protocol. In this case report, we aimed to share our experience about a 74-year-old male patient presented to our clinic with the complaint of episodic abdominal pain and underwent cholecystectomy under elective conditions due to a polyp with a diameter of 4 cm visualized in the gallbladder on ultrasound and diagnosed with neuroendocrine carcinoma as a result of histopathological examination.

Keywords: Cholecystectomy, gallbladder; neuroendocrine tumor; small cell.

Safra kesesinin küçük hücreli nöroendokrin karsinomu henüz standart bir tedavi protokolü olmayan nadir görülen, agresif bir malignitedir. Bu olgu sunumunda kliniğimize epizodik karın ağrısı şikayeti ile başvuran, ultrasonda safra kesesinde 4 cm çaplı bir polip saptanması nedeniyle elektif kolesistektomi yapılan ve histopatolojik inceleme sonucunda nöroendokrin karsinom tanısı konulan 74 yaşında bir erkek hasta ile ilgili deneyimimizi paylaşmayı amaçladık.
