Background: Carcinoid crisis (CC) may rarely occur as a complication of general anesthesia/surgery or peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in patients with neuroendocrine tumor (NET). The incidence of CC as a complication of PRRT is underestimated and comes to 10% of all radioisotope therapies. Progressive organ dysfunction, decrease or increase in blood pressure SBP <80 mmHg or >180 mmHg, unexplained tachyarrhythmia with heart rate >120/ min, bronchoconstr...
