Abstract

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are rare pancreatic tumours which can mimic more common diagnoses like pancreatic pseudocysts or pancreatic mass. Here we describe two of our cases who presented with abdominal pain and weight loss and were diagnosed to have Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm (IPMN) after Endoscopic Ultrasound-guided Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS FNA) which was crucial in clinching the diagnosis.

Keywords

Endoscopic Ultrasound-guided Fine Needle Aspiration, Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm, Pancreatic cysts
