Foregut cystic malformations in the pancreas. Are definitions clearly established?
Summary of "Foregut cystic malformations in the pancreas. Are definitions clearly established?"
Foregut cystic malformations are common lesions in the mediastinum but are rarely found in subdiaphragmatic locations. Only a few cases have been described within the pancreas where they can easily be misdiagnosed as cystic neoplasms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Cyst-like space not lined by EPITHELIUM and contained within the PANCREAS. Pancreatic pseudocysts account for most of the cystic collections in the pancreas and are often associated with chronic PANCREATITIS.
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency
A malabsorption condition resulting from greater than 10% reduction in the secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes (LIPASE; PROTEASES; and AMYLASE) by the EXOCRINE PANCREAS into the DUODENUM. This condition is often associated with CYSTIC FIBROSIS and with chronic PANCREATITIS.
A cystic growth originating from lymphatic tissue. It is usually found in the neck, axilla, or groin.
The transference of a pancreas from one human or animal to another.
Cystic-cavernous lymphangioma is a rare cystic tumor especially for adults and pancreas.
We describe here a case of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease with a serous cystic neoplasm of the whole pancreas. The patient was a 35-year-old woman suffering from a palpable abdominal tumor. She had a...
Cystic lesions of the pancreas are being detected with increasing frequency. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is one of the most precise methods of diagnosis but still has...
Synchronous cystic neoplasms of pancreas are a highly rare occurrence.
Solid-cystic pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas is a rare tumor, but has favorable prognosis even in the presence of distant metastases. It is often associated with diagnostic and therapeutic chall...
Cystic fibrosis is a disease that affects many parts of the body, particularly the lungs and pancreas. The main purpose of this study is to further understand the natural history, clinical...
Pancreatic cysts are common, and some pancreas cysts have malignant potential. Usual treatment of these cysts is either observation or surgical removal of part or all of the pancreas. Mini...
Cystic lesions of the pancreas are defined as round, fluid-filled structures within the pancreas detected by radiologic imaging. With widespread use of cross-sectional imaging modalities f...
Brain vascular malformations, including arteriovenous malformations (AVM), cavernous malformations (CVM) and aneurysms, are a source of life-threatening risk of intracranial hemorrhage. Th...
The purpose of this study is to provide the necessary data and experience to design a larger, full scale clinical trial to determine if a certain medicine (repaglinide), which increases th...
