Cystic tumours of the pancreas
De Medici A., Venegoni A., Torello Viera F.
The authors illustrate 2 cases of cystic pancreatic neoplasms recently observed at the 2nd Surgical Clinic of IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo in Pavia. Having emphasised the rarity of this pathology, they describe the specific nature of the clinical condition and symptoms which may remain unchanged for a long period. They then highlight the most significant radiological aspects, paying special attention to differential diagnosis. Surgery is indicated as the treatment of election, correlated to the topography of the lesion, the anatomic and histological nature of the disease, especially mucinous, and the patient's general conditions.
