Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are cystic neoplasms with the potential for progression to pancreatic cancer. Recognized by the global medical community just over two decades ago, IPMN have gained great epidemiological and clinical relevance thanks to the widespread use of cross-sectional abdominal imaging, which has led to a surge in the number of incidental pancreatic cysts being diagnosed. As our understanding of this disease has improved, we now know that some IPMN have a very elevated risk of cancer and require surgical resection, while others are low-risk lesions and can be followed...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the agreement between the imaging modalities MRI-MRCP and EUS in cystic lesions of the pancreas which were thought to be a BD-IPMN. METHODS: Multicenter retrospective study included all patients between 2010 and 2015 with a suspected BD-IPMN who underwent an EUS and MRI-MRCP within 6 months or less of each other. Location, number, size, worrisome features and high-risk stigmata were evaluated. Interobserver agreement was evaluated by Kappa score...

Despite the high prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) worldwide, pancreatic TB is rare. When present, pancreatic TB is frequently associated with miliary TB, often in immunocompromised hosts. Pancreatic TB may present as a pancreatic abscess, acute or chronic pancreatitis, and cystic or solid pancreatic masses. This is a case of isolated Tubecular infection of the pancreas in an immunocompetent patient, who presented with a discrete pancreatic abscess, and was subsequently diagnosed with isolated pancreatic TB. This case suggests that clinicians should have a heightened suspicion of pancreatic TB when faced with discrete pancreatic lesions, especially in patients from areas where the infection is endemic...

Hydatid disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Hydatid cysts are commonly located in the liver and lungs. The occurrence of pancreatic hydatid cysts is very rare, even in endemic areas. Sinistral portal hypertension, which is rarely seen, occurs when a pathological process causes splenic vein occlusion. A 26-year-old male patient presented with abdominal pain. He had a history of operation for hydatid cyst of the lung 15 years ago. A left thoracotomy incision scar was observed during his physical examination...

Most pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAs) show solid growth pattern, but ductal adenocarcinomas may demonstrate intratumoral cystic appearance or accompany peritumoral non-neoplastic cystic lesions, thus mimicking cystic pancreatic tumors on imaging studies. The histopathologic findings for PDA with cystic feature are divided into neoplastic and non-neoplastic cysts. Neoplastic cystic changes include large-duct type cysts (microcystic appearance), neoplastic mucin cysts (macrocystic appearance), colloid carcinomas (mucinous noncystic adenocarcinomas), and degenerative cystic change usually caused by hemorrhagic necrosis of tumor...

EDITORIAL
Hans G Beger
Pancreaticoduodenectomy and left-sided pancreatectomy are the surgical treatment standards for tumors of the pancreas. Surgeons, who are requested to treat patients with benign tumors, using standard oncological resections, face the challenge of sacrificing pancreatic and extra-pancreatic tissue. Tumor enucleation, pancreatic middle segment resection and local, duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resections are surgical procedures increasingly used as alternative treatment modalities compared to classical pancreatic resections...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) continues to carry the lowest survival rates among all solid tumors. A marked resistance against available therapies, late clinical presentation and insufficient means for early diagnosis contribute to the dismal prognosis. Novel biomarkers are thus required to aid treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes. We describe here a multi-omics molecular platform that allows for the first time to simultaneously analyze miRNA and mRNA expression patterns from minimal amounts of biopsy material on a single microfluidic TaqMan Array card...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) is the seventh most common cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide that kills more than 300,000 people every year. Prognosis of PC is very poor with a five-year survival rate about 5%. The most common and highly observed type of PC is pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). It is preceded by the progression of precursor lesions such as Pancreatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PanIN), Intraductal Papillary Neoplasm (IPMN) and Mucinous Cystic Neoplasm (MCN). PanIN is the most common among these premalignant lesions...

BACKGROUND: Enucleation is increasingly used for benign or low-grade pancreatic neoplasms. Enucleation preserves the pancreatic parenchyma as well as decreases the risk of long-term endocrine and exocrine dysfunction, but may be associated with a higher rate of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF). The aim of this study was to assess short-term outcomes, in particular, POPF. METHODS: Data were collected retrospectively from all 142 patients who underwent pancreatic enucleation between 2009 and 2014 in our institution were analyzed...

Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is considered a low-malignant neoplasm with a good prognosis. However, 5% to 15% of patients with SPNs develop metastatic disease, most commonly in the liver. Metastatic hepatic malignancies that show pseudocystic features are rare. Here we describe the case of a middle-aged female with a cystic liver metastasis from SPN. To the best of our knowledge, SPN with a single cystic liver metastasis has not been described, although these tumours frequently undergo haemorrhagic-cystic degeneration...

Hemosuccus pancreaticus is an unusual gastrointestinal hemorrhage through the main pancreatic duct. We report a rare case of hemosuccus pancreaticus due to a simple mucinous cyst of the pancreas. A 52-year-old man who had been followed-up for a suspected branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) visited the emergency room due to hematochezia. Endoscopy showed active bleeding from the ampulla. Computed tomography revealed hemorrhage in a 2.0-cm cystic mass in the pancreatic body. The patient was diagnosed with hemosuccus pancreaticus caused by bleeding into the main pancreatic duct from suspected IPMN...

Mesenteric masses are infrequent lesions ranging from benign cysts to aggressive malignancies and often present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The mesentery is a frequent recipient of metastases from the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, and biliary cancers. Primary mesenteric tumors are relatively rare, mostly mesenchymal in origin and benign in nature. Examples include gastrointestinal stromal tumors and smooth muscle tumors. We describe a 50-year-old woman, who presented with a lump in the left hypochondrium along with altered bowel habits of 2 years' duration...

Cystic fibrosis (CF)-related diabetes (CFRD) is thought to result from beta-cell injury due in part to pancreas exocrine damage and lipofibrosis. CFRD pancreata exhibit reduced islet density and altered cellular composition. To investigate a possible etiology, we tested the hypothesis that such changes are present in CF pancreata before the development of lipofibrosis. We evaluated pancreas and islet morphology in tissues from very young CF children (<4 years of age), and adult patients with CF and CFRD...

BACKGROUND: Gallbladder cancer (GBC) has been contraindicated for laparoscopic surgery since this procedure was introduced [1, 2]. Recently, however, there have been several reports of laparoscopic extended cholecystectomy for GBC, but most cases involved early GBC confined to the GB [3, 4]. This video describes our technique of laparoscopic extended cholecystectomy for T3 GBC. METHODS: A 77-year-old female presented with a gallbladder mass, which was incidentally detected during evaluation of back pain...
