Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinico-pathological features of patients with solid and cystic papillary neoplasm of the pancreas. METHODS: The clinico-pathological features of solid and cystic papillary neoplasm of the pancreas were studied in seven fully documented and confirmed cases presented during the last seven years. RESULTS: All the patients were women with a median age of 18 years (range 12-40). Four presented with epigastric pain and three had a painless abdominal lump. The median duration of symptoms prior to presentation was 3 months (range 1-6). The tumor size ranged from 6-16 cm (mean 10 cm). Preoperative diagnosis was established by fine needle aspiration cytology in three patients. All the seven underwent resection. Pericapsular adhesions were found in two patients. All the patients were free of disease on follow-up ranging from 3-60 months (median 16 mo). CONCLUSION: Occurrence in young females, solid and cystic areas on imaging, resectability in spite of large size, and good prognosis are the important features of this tumor.
