BACKGROUND Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms of the pancreas (SPNs) are uncommon tumours usually frequent in young women. Although the pathogenesis of SPNs is uncertain a potential influence of the sex hormone milieu on the biology of these tumours has been suggested. The controversial expression of oestrogen receptors (ERs) in SPNs, provide a rationale for studying the effects of oestrogenic molecules on SPN development. METHODS The expression of a large series of hormonal ligands and… CONTINUE READING
