Splenic infarction. A rare presentation of anaplastic pancreatic carcinoma and a review of the literature.
JOP. 2008 Jul 10; 9(4):493-8.JOP

Abstract

CONTEXT

Anaplastic carcinoma of the pancreas is a rare variant of ductal adenocarcinoma. The histogenesis and biologic behavior of these tumors are still controversial. They occur in elderly men and are associated with a very poor prognosis.

CASE REPORT

We report a case of advanced anaplastic carcinoma in a 41-year-old man who presented with splenic infarction. He had a prolonged survival of 16 months from diagnosis.

CONCLUSION

Splenic infarction is a most unusual acute presentation of pancreatic carcinoma, which may require emergency tumor resection and splenectomy.
