All clinically and ultrasonographically suspected examples of intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) aspirated during a 17-month period were reviewed and analyzed for follow-up. We identified 18 cases of suspected IPMN in patients 52 to 87 years old. All patients had dilated pancreatic ducts, with 3 showing sonographically apparent intraductal papillary lesions; 5 had adjacent cystic or solid pancreatic masses. Cytologic preparations showed thick, glistening, viscid, abnormal mucus in… 
Fine‐needle aspiration cytology of intraductal papillary‐mucinous tumors: A retrospective analysis
Intraductal papillary‐mucinous tumor (IPMT) of the pancreas has become the accepted terminology for a group of mucin‐producing epithelial proliferations lying within ectatic segments of the main
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas. A study of 8 cases.
TLDR
The characteristic pre-operative EUS findings and cytomorphologic features, in addition to the immunocytochemical profile, were accurate indications and coincided with the final/post-operative histological diagnosis of IPMN.
Role of endoscopic ultrasound in the diagnosis of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms: correlation with surgical histopathology.
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology diagnosis of solid-pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas: a rare neoplasm of elusive origin but characteristic cytomorphologic features.
TLDR
Clinical setting, cytomorphologic features, and immunostains of the cell block help distinguish SPTP from pancreatic endocrine tumors, acinar cell carcinoma, and papillary mucinous carcinoma.
Intraductal papillary mucinous tumors of the pancreas.
TLDR
The correct diagnosis, achieved until recently only with endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography, can be currently obtained with non-invasive imaging modalities, particularly computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.

TLDR
Patients with IPMN generally present in the seventh or eighth decade of life with the head of the gland being the predominant disease site and the aim should be to resect all gross disease while attempting to achieve a negative surgical margin, which in the majority of cases can be achieved by a partial pancreatectomy.
Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms
TLDR
This chapter will discuss various aspects of IPMNs including the clinical features, imaging findings, pathologic features, molecular genetics, and management recommendations.
Evaluation of serial changes of pancreatic branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms by follow-up with magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
Branch duct IPMNs smaller than 3 cm, without associated filling defects, tend to be stable, making ‘watch and wait’ management possible, according to a retrospective evaluation of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography data.
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas: a case report and literature review.
TLDR
EUS findings, cytomorphologic features and immunostains of cell block help distinguish SPTP from pancreatic endocrine tumors, acinar cell carcinoma and papillary mucinous carcinoma.
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs): is it time to (sometimes) spare the knife?
TLDR
The incidence of IPMNs has increased dramatically over the past 10 years and, nowadays, they represent the second indication for pancreatic resection at this institution, after ductal adenocarcinoma.

The high ratio of p27 protein to cyclin E supports the excellent prognosis of these neoplasms, despite the presence of invasion and K-ras oncogene mutation.

TLDR
The hypothesis that chronic pancreatitis and/or ductal epithelial papillary hyperplasia may play a role in the pathogenesis of this tumor is favors and the use of the term intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm is suggested.

TLDR
Intraductal papillary-mucinous tumors of the pancreas can be well characterized by means of endoscopy and radiology and poor compliance to surgical treatment makes individual multidisciplinary management and follow-up necessary.

IPT is a dysplastic and likely precancerous lesion that is frequently diagnosed as chronic pancreatitis and is separate from MCN and the treatment of choice whenever appropriate.

TLDR
The indolent biologic behavior and favorable prognosis of IMHN suggest that it is one of the most curable forms of pancreatic malignancy.
Fine‐needle aspiration cytology of neoplastic cysts of the pancreas
TLDR
The cytologic features of four cases of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas as seen in fine‐needle aspirates are reported, which corresponds closely to the histologic classification proposed by Compagno and Oertel and hence is of prognostic and therapeutic value.
Needle aspiration cytology of pancreatic cystic lesions
TLDR
Forty‐two histologically confirmed cases of pancreatic cystic lesions with cytologic evaluation by needle aspiration biopsy were reviewed and a cytodiagnosis of PSCN was correctly made as the NAB revealed monomorphic tumor cells wrapping around small capillary blood vessels.
Intraductal papillary neoplasms of the pancreas. A clinicopathologic study of six patients
TLDR
Because of their favorable prognosis, intraductal papillary neoplasms should be considered low‐grade malignancies that must not be confused with the common ductal adenocarcinoma.
Clinicopathologic view of intraductal papillary-mucinous tumor of the pancreas.
TLDR
Patients with non-invasive IPMT survive for long periods after surgery, as do many patients with invasive, non-metastatic IPMT, although intraductal proliferation with a mild degree of atypia may be present at the resection margin.
Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Tumors of the Pancreas Confined to Secondary Ducts Show Less Aggressive Pathologic Features as Compared With Those Involving the Main Pancreatic Duct
TLDR
IMPT of the branch type occurs in younger patients and is associated with less aggressive histologic features than is the main pancreatic duct type, which raises the difficult issue of clinical management of IPMT of the branches type as a distinctive group.
