PMID:  8607515     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Mucinous ductal ectasia is a recently defined neoplasm of the pancreas characterized by excessive mucin production. The natural history of this entity is unknown, and only two cases in people over the age of 80 yr have appeared in the literature. In this report, we review the literature on mucinous ductal ectasia and present the first report of an octogenarian who was successfully treated by the Whipple procedure.
