Endoscopic ultrasound for differential diagnosis of malignant pancreatic cystic lesions: case report and review of literature

Endoscopic ultrasound for differential diagnosis of malignant pancreatic cystic lesions: case report and review of literature OncoReview 2020; 3(39): 103-107. DOI: 10.24292/01.OR.320051120
STRESZCZENIE

A 63-year-old female patient was admitted to the hospital for an in-depth diagnosis of accidentally found pancreatic cystic lesion. The lesion was detected by computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen and identified as potentially malignant mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN). Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy with the analysis of the fluid from the cyst was performed as well and it confirmed the malignancy of the cystic lesion. The patient was qualified for surgery and the final diagnosis based on histopathological examination of the surgical material confirmed MCN with the accompanying invasive pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
