Pancreatic cystic neoplasms. Where clinics, imaging and surgery really count (EN)

Mouzas, I.A.

Cystic pancreatic tumors form a heterogeneous group of tumors that usually present diagnostic difficulties concerning their neoplastic or inflammatory nature. What makes these tumors interesting and important is the fact that most of them once recognized can be definitely cured by surgical resection, making a sharp contrast to ductal adenocarcinoma. In classifying cystic pancreatic tumors we follow the WHO classification of 1996 which is based on the features of their epithelial wall. Main groups are: serous cystic tumors, mucinous cystic tumors and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms. The diagnostic workup of these tumors is based on modern imaging methods (Computed tomography with contrast injection, magnetic resonance imaging and cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound). Surgery is an effective treatment and follow up is mandatory. (EN)
