Les lésions kystiques du pancréas sous l'angle du médecin de premiers recours

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2016, vol. 12, no. 523, p. 1174-1179
Abstract The detection rate of cystic lesions of the pancreas has increased following the widespread use of high-resolution imaging technologies. CT-scan, MRI and echo-endoscopy are diagnostic modalities. Pseudocyst is the most common lesion. It is benign and can be managed with endoscopic treatment. Mucinous cystic neoplasia and Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasia (IPMN) carry a risk for malignant transformation. The surgical treatment of these lesions has to be discussed by a multidisciplinary board. Serous cystic neoplasia and pseudopapillar and solid neoplasia are two rare types of lesion. The aim of this article is to present the diagnostic pathway and the management of these lesions from the general practitioner point of view.
