ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Pancreatic Mucinous Cystic Neoplasm (Mucinous Cystadenoma)

History: A 57 yo F with recent gastric bypass surgery developed shortness of breath and tachycardia several days after surgery.

Findings: On CT imaging an incidental 3.6cm mass was seen in the tail of the pancreas. Follow up contrast enhanced CT demonstrated a macrocystic mass in the tail of the pancreas with a coarse calcification. No pancreatic ductal dilation was seen.

Ddx: 1. Mucinous cystic neoplasm (macrocystic cystadenoma) 2. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm 3. Pseudocyst 4. Adenocarcinoma 5. Oligocystic variant of a microcystic serous cystadenoma

Dxhow: Pathology confirmed diagnosis

Exam: Tachycardia Elevated D dimer test Otherwise normal physical exam findings and BMP

No MeSH data available.
