    Mucinous ductal ectasia is a recently defined neoplasm of the pancreas characterized by excessive mucin production. The natural history of this entity is unknown, and only two cases in people over the age of 80 yr have appeared in the literature. In this report, we review the literature on...

    Abstract Mucinous ductal ectasia is an uncommon disorder, characterized by ductal dilatation and filling with thick, viscid mucus, described in the pancreas. We report a case of mucinous ductal ectasia of the biliary tree. The cause of the mucus production was mucous metaplasia in the biliary...

    Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas may present in a "ductectatic" form, which parallels a distinct clinical presentation. We describe six patients with this entity termed mucinous ductal ectasia, or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm. All six patients presented with typical clinical...

    Four cases of intraductal mucin-producing tumors of the pancreas are presented, with a literature review. These tumors have been reported with increasing frequency, especially in Japan, since it was advocated that they represented a new clinical entity in 1982. Despite the recent controversy,...

    Mucus-secreting pancreatic lesions, most commonly described by the Japanese, are often malignant (as in cystic or mucin-producing adenocarcinomas), but can be benign (hyperplastic or adenomatous cytology). We report a case of total pancreatic ductal enlargement without a localized lesion in...

    Background:The American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) identifies five rare variants of prostate adenocarcinoma: mucinous, ductal, signet ring cell, adenosquamous and neuroendocrine including small cell. No prior study has comprehensively detailed incidence and outcomes for all AJCC variants...

    OBJECTIVE: Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas have a more favorable prognosis than ductal adenocarcinoma. Management of a subgroup, intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms, is controversial. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with fine-needle aspiration biopsy may emerge as the imaging modality...

    Objectives: Intraductal mucin-hypersecreting neoplasm (IMHN), also termed mucinous ductal ectasia, is a rare disorder of the pancreas characterized by distension of the pancreatic duct with mucus.
