VIPoma is an extremely rare neuroendocrine tumour. Majority of the lesions occur in the pancreas. There is usually a long and recurrent history of secretory diarrhoea. Current diagnostic methods help in diagnosing a VIPoma once it is suspected. We herein report a case of VIPoma which had the delay in diagnosis and presented at an extremely unusual location (pyloroduodenal) who underwent laparoscopic resection for the same.
