Abstract: An intraductal papillary mucinous tumour of the pancreas is a poorly known condition which is often confused with a chronic pancreatitis. It represents an intraductal pancreatic tumour with papillary and villous proliferations of mucin-producing cells. The paramount morphologic characteristics are a more or less severe dilatation of the pancreatic duct in the absence of a stenotic lesion, as well as the presence of a patulous and mucus-containing papilla at ERCP.
An intraductal papillary mucinous tumour represents a premalignant condition which may lead to pancreatic carcinoma. Therefore, it requires an aggressive approach with partial or complete pancreatectomy.
