of > 1000 U/ml in pancreas cyst fluid is considered almost pathognomonic for a mucinous cystic neoplasm. A 32−year−old woman underwent abdominal computed tomography (CT) for evaluation of right upper quadrant pain, which revealed a 10−mm pancreatic tail cyst (l" Fig. 1a, b). The sharply demarcated cyst without septation did not communicate with the pancreatic duct. Follow−up CT, 4 months later, revealed interval growth to 16 mm. Analysis of cyst fluid obtained at endo− scopic ultrasonography… CONTINUE READING
