Pancreatic cysts

The take home message for differentiating pancreatic cysts are-

1. When you see no epithelial lining to the cyst on microscopy, think of a pseudocyst
2. When you see a multilocular cyst with a central scar, think of a serous cystadenoma; if it is absent, think of a mucinious cystadenoma. Both are " NOT" connected to the main pancreatic ductal system
3. When you see a sizable (more than 1cm) growth within the pancreatic duct, think of IPMN!

That's it!
