BOLIVAR S, Dinimo José et al. Clinical case of pancreatic mucinous cystic neoplasms and literature review. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.3, pp.301-307. ISSN 0120-9957.

Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas occur relatively frequently and mainly affect women in the transition to menopause. Most of these neoplasms are unique but are located in the body and tail of the pancreas and have no communication with the pancreatic ductal system. Less than 20% are malignant. Evaluation should include clinical presentation, imaging, endoscopic ultrasonography, puncture biopsies, cytology and chemical analysis of the liquid to measure angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) levels. Complete surgical resection is the only treatment that can improve long-term survival in patients with malignant mucinous cystic lesions. This article includes a review of the literature related to presentation of a case diagnosed by the surgical clinical gastroenterology group at Clínica la Presentación in Manizales, Colombia.

Palavras-chave : Cystadenoma; cystadenocarcinoma; mucinous cystic tumor of the pancreas.
