    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) alone to predict and differentiate malignant from benign cystic lesions of the pancreas. METHODS: From January, 1995, to August, 1999, 98 cases of pancreatic cystic lesions were evaluated by EUS; all of...

    Background: Choledochal cysts (CC) are a cystic dilation of the intra- or extrahepatic biliary tree. They are rare, and are associated with a risk of malignant transformation. Due to the close proximity to the pancreas, Type II CC, in which a diverticular outpouching is connected to the...

    Seven cases of the "duct-ectatic" variant of mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas are presented. This new entity, the duct-ectatic variant of mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas, probably masquerades as pancreatic pseudocyst clinically and radiologically. However, it has the...

    BACKGROUND: The frequency of pancreaticoduodenal endocrine tumors in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) remains unknown. AIM: To evaluate prospectively with endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) the frequency of nonfunctioning (asymptomatic) pancreaticoduodenal tumors. PATIENTS...

    OBJECTIVES: Recently, intraductal papillary-mucinous tumor (IPMT) of the pancreas has increasingly been recognized. However, differential diagnosis between benign and malignant IPMT is often difficult using conventional imaging modalities. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively...
