An oncocytic carcinoma of the pancreas with pulmonary and subcutaneous metastases.

Abstract

A 72-year-old man with an oncocytic carcinoma of the pancreas of 3 years' duration was treated by pancreatoduodenectomy; 5 and 16 months later, two pulmonary metastases and one subcutaneous metastasis of the thigh were removed. No sign of local recurrence or metastases was present at 20-month follow-up. It is suggested that oncocytic carcinomas of the pancreas have a favorable prognosis if treated surgically.
