Successful Treated Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm with Pancreatitis

  • 1Department of Internal Medicine, Daegu Fatima Hospital, Daegu, Korea


Most pancreatic cystic neoplasms are detected incidentally. The major challenge is identifying lesions with malignant potential or signs of malignancy. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are classified as main duct-type or branch duct-type or mixed type. Many patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) have no symptoms. Some patients have pancreatitis-like symptoms and elevated pancreatic enzymes. Resection is typically recommended for IPMNs with high-grade dysplasia, IPMNs that have progressed to invasive carcinoma, and IPMNs with features concerning for malignancy or that are at high risk for developing malignancy. A 81-year-old male visited emergency room because of abdomen pain. He was diagnosed as IPMN with acute pancreatitis. We treated pancreatitis using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and then he was discharged successfully.
