Abstract

Context: Polycystic disease is a rare disorder, which most commonly manifests in the kidney and liver. Recently an increased risk for pancreatic malignancies in subsets of patients with polycystic disease has been reported. Case report: We report a patient with polycystic liver and kidney disease who successfully underwent a Whipple's procedure for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Conclusion: Although technical difficulty may increase, pancreaticoduodenectomy can be safely performed in patients with polycystic liver disease.
