QUESADA VILLA, Ingrid et al. Solid and cystic pancreatic papillary carcinoma. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2014, vol.43, n.3, pp.401-407. ISSN 0138-6557.

A 22 years-old female patient who began feeling some pain in the upper hemiabdomen that became intensive after food consumption and the feeling of having eaten too much. The serum amylase levels were within the normal limits. The imaging studies both echography and computerized axial tomography disclosed a well-defined and vascularized tumor mass in the tail of pancreas. She was operated on to completely remove the lesion. The anatomopathological study confirmed the diagnosis of solid and cystic pancreatic papillary carcinoma. Later on, the patient received chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The evolutional imaging tests did not show either local relapses or distant metastasis. The patient responded well to treatment and her health status is good nowadays.
