Disease relevance of Pancreatic Cyst


High impact information on Pancreatic Cyst

  • RESULTS: A high frequency of K-ras mutation was detected (more than 2% of all K-ras genes) in six of 14 patients (43%) with pancreatic cysts [6].
  • The diagnosis of endocrine tumor must be considered for any pancreatic cyst discovered in a patient with a history of MEN1 syndrome or with clinical features suggestive of this syndrome [7].
  • We evaluated the usefulness of the mucin-like carcinoma-associated antigen (MCA) in the fluid of pancreatic cysts for detecting mucinous neoplasms [8].
  • TPA levels in pancreatic cyst fluids have not been reported [9].
  • We report a case of a 22-year-old woman with a symptomatic true pancreatic cyst located in proximity to the pancreatic head, duodenum, vena cava, biliary tree, and right kidney, which was enucleated through a laparoscopic approach [10].
