Abstract

Solid and cystic papillary epithelial neoplasms of the pancreas are uncommon tumors occurring predominantly in young women. These tumors have excellent prognosis and after complete surgical resection, more that 95% patients are cured. Occasionally, they invade the surrounding pancreatic parenchyma. These tumors can recur even many years after resection, so long-term follow up is essential. Very few cases metastasize. We present a case of a middle aged woman with metastases to liver and omentum
