The author reflects on the management of branch intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs). It highlights the study of Uehera and colleagues where the researchers find out layers of complexity in the direction of BD-IPMNs. Moreover, it mentions some follow up studies on BD-IPMNs. The reasons for these complexities of associations revealed in the study of Uehera and colleagues are vague. The author suggests that further studies are needed to provide data on BD-IPMNs.
