PMID:  23183402     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
CONTEXT: Mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) of the pancreas usually affects female patients and is characterized by an ovarian-type stroma. From literature review, only 9 cases of MCNs have been reported in male patients.
CASE REPORT: We describe the 10th case of a MCN in a 65-year-old male patient who underwent a distal pancreatectomy with spleen resection and standard lymphadenectomy.
CONCLUSIONS: MCN may rarely regard male patients, probably for embryological abnormalities.
