The following case is a 69-year-old woman with a presumptive diagnosis of adenocarcinoma in transverse colon, which was diagnosed by pathology as a mixed carcinoid-adenocarcinoma tumor after surgery. We have found very few cases published of this type of tumor in the colon (around 20) but not cases in the transverse colon. We discuss in the following report the diagnosis, the therapeutic conduct and its results. We point out with particular consideration that, due to the lack of information related to the functional behaviour and clinical characteristics of these mixed tumors, more studies, analysis, follow-up and descriptions are necessary to perform future diagnosis and therapeutic procedures.
