OBJECTIVES Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN) are both precancerous lesions. Papillary mucinous neoplasms have been described in patients with IPMN, but their relationship is still poorly understood. The aims of this study were to look for PanIN lesions in patients operated on for IPMN and to search for correlations between endoscopic ultrasonography(EUS) features and pathologic findings. METHODS Endoscopic ultrasonography was… CONTINUE READING
