Pseudo papillary and solid tumor of the pancreas: a rare tumor and a difficult diagnosis.

Summary of "Pseudo papillary and solid tumor of the pancreas: a rare tumor and a difficult diagnosis."

The pseudopapillary and solid tumor of the pancreas is a rare disease that accounts for 2% of pancreatic tumors. It affects mainly young, female adults. The clinical features are not specific, hence the diagnostic difficulty and the importance of imaging. The diagnosis is based on pathological examination coupled with immunohistochemistry. The aim of our work was to report the difficulty of the diagnostic procedure in a patient with a pancreatic cystic tumor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)

An adenocarcinoma in which the tumor elements are arranged as finger-like processes or as a solid spherical nodule projecting from an epithelial surface.

A rare syndrome characterized by UROGENITAL ABNORMALITIES; GONADAL DYSGENESIS; PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM; and WILMS TUMOR. It is caused by a mutation in the Wilms tumor suppressor gene (GENES, WILMS TUMOR) on chromosome 11.

A rare tumor of the female genital tract, most often the ovary, formerly considered to be derived from mesonephric rests. Two varieties are recognized: (1) clear cell carcinoma, so called because of its histologic resemblance to renal cell carcinoma, and now considered to be of muellerian duct derivation and (2) an embryonal tumor (called also ENDODERMAL SINUS TUMOR and yolk sac tumor), occurring chiefly in children. The latter variety may also arise in the testis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
