Abstract

The World Health Organization (WHO) classification of cystic pancreatic tumors defines mucinous cystic neoplasms as large, thick-walled, septated cysts with no communication with the main pancreatic duct, associated with the presence of ovarian-like stroma. Serous cystic neoplasms, on the contrary, present with a cuboidal or simple squamous epithelium and fibrous or hyalinized stroma without ovarian-like stroma. We present the case of a 23-year-old woman presenting with abdominal pain related to a new type of cystic pancreatic neoplasm characterized by non-mucinous pancreaticobiliary cystic epithelium and ovarian-like stroma that was surgically removed.
