Cystadenocarcinoma of the pancreas 9 years after a pancreatic cyst operation: report of a case.Eur J Surg Oncol. 1989 Apr; 15(2):169-73.EJ
A patient case with cystadenocarcinoma of the pancreas in a middle-aged woman is described. Nine years prior to the pancreatic malignancy she underwent cystogastrostomy due to a pancreatic cyst presumed to be of non-neoplastic nature. The malignancy occurred at the site of the previous cystogastrostomy and was radically resected. Five years later the patient was well without signs of recurrence. The possibilities of incorrect primary diagnosis or development of a rare pancreatic malignancy in a previous cystogastrostomy are discussed.
