Abstract

In order to analyze the clinical, pathological, and surgical characteristics of pancreatic mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN), an analysis of the patients from the Pancreas, Spleen, and Retroperitoneal Surgery Service of the Guillermo Almenara Irigoyen National Hospital in Lima, Peru, was performed from January 2009 to October 2018. The presence of ovarian stroma was used as a diagnostic criterion for MCN. From ten patients with an average age of 47.8 years, nine were women; the lesions were located in the distal pancreas, and the average tumor size was 88.6 mm. All patients underwent a distal pancreatectomy, three of which were laparoscopic; there were no reoperations or deaths; two patients had associated invasive carcinoma. In conclusion, the frequency of MCN is higher in middle-aged women, being the location in the distal pancreas and the percentage of malignancy is low. Laparoscopic surgery is a disease management option.
