Papillary cystic and solid tumour of the pancreas-CT
The Papillary cystic and solid tumour of the pancreas (PCSTP) is an unusual low-malignant epithelial tumour, which mostly affects young females with a mean age 25 years. It has also been referred to as a solid-cystic epithelial tumour, solid-pseudopapillary tumour or papillary-cystic tumour. Typically, on CT scan PCSTP tumours appear as sharply circumscribed, well-encapsulated, heterogeneous and hypodense lesions. This is a 37 year female with histologically proven case of PCSTP.
