Gastric neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare tumors with a broad spectrum of symptoms; in recent years, the number of cases has increased due to the growing number of upper endoscopies. Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic and bariatric surgery one of the most effective therapies to control this illness. As more surgeries are performed, the number of histopathological samples will also increase. Incidental discoveries on these histopathological specimens are difficult situations to encounter as medical plans, prognosis and therapy will have to change accordingly. We present the case of a 43-year-old patient who underwent a laparoscopic gastric sleeve. On pathology, a NET was detected, and additional surgery was required. On follow-ups, the patient is doing well.
