1,098 Possible Causes for Pancreatic Cysts

  • Cystadenoma

    The pancreatic cyst fluid cytology was basophilic amorph materials concluded as benign cystic lesion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the first case of acinar cell cystadenoma in a 65-year-old woman, diagnosed pre-operatively by pancreatic cyst fluid cytology and Moray micro-forceps biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a patient with a post-traumatic peri-pancreatic cyst that later ruptured suddenly, leading to an acute abdomen.[grandroundsjournal.com]

  • Pancreatic Neoplasm

    We also review surgical treatment and strategies for surveillance of pancreatic cysts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Currently we monitor more than 2,000 people with pancreatic cysts through our Pancreatic Cyst Surveillance Program.[mskcc.org] Diagnosing Pancreatic Cysts Doctors use computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to diagnose pancreatic cysts and determine their type.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Von Hippel-Lindau Disease

    Multiple pancreatic cyst in combination with central nervous system hemangioma may be associated with Von Hippel-Lindau disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pancreatic cysts had benign component.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Epididymal cysts and cystadenomas (60% of male patients) may occur, as well as multiple pancreatic cysts (most patients) but non-secretory pancreatic islet cell tumors only[orpha.net]

    Treatment of Pancreatic Cysts For patients who require surgery, we have pancreatic surgeons on our team who specialize in the treatment of pancreatic cysts.[nyp.org] A pancreatic cyst is a closed sac lined with epithelium and located on or in your pancreas. Pancreatic cysts contain fluid.[my.clevelandclinic.org] Some pancreatic cysts result from certain rare diseases, such as von Hippel-Lindau disease (a genetic disorder). What is a pancreatic pseudocyst?[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Pancreatic Cyst

    Pancreatic cysts are extremely common, and are identified in between 2% to 13% on abdominal imaging studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A pancreatic cyst is a fluid filled sac within the pancreas. Causes range from benign to malignant.[en.wikipedia.org] Research into new biochemical markers and optimal use of available pancreatic cyst fluid analyses is ongoing.

  • Recurrent Acute Pancreatitis

    Pancreatic cystic lesions have various etiologies, including pseudocyst (inflammatory cyst), retention cyst, congenital cyst, and neoplastic cyst.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary pancreatic hydatid disease is rare and there have only been a few cases of recurrent acute pancreatitis due to a hydatid cyst of the pancreas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We thought that the gastric duplication cyst communicating with an aberrant pancreatic duct was responsible for the recurrent acute pancreatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
