Pancreatic mucinous cystic neoplasm in a male patient.
ABSTRACT Mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) of the pancreas usually affects female patients and is characterized by an ovarian-type stroma. From literature review, only 9 cases of MCNs have been reported in male patients.
We describe the 10th case of a MCN in a 65-year-old male patient who underwent a distal pancreatectomy with spleen resection and standard lymphadenectomy.
MCN may rarely regard male patients, probably for embryological abnormalities.
