Although many cases of solid cystic tumor of the pancreas (SCT) have been reported, its nature and histogenesis remain controversial. We herein report six cases of SCT, including three cases of noncystic type. A review of 22 cases of noncystic type SCT, including our 3 cases, was carried out to compare their features with those of 173 cases of classic SCT reported in Japan. Noncystic type SCTs tend to occur in male patients and are smaller in size and less frequently symptomatic, although they show histological characteristics similar to those of classic SCTs. The developmental process might be a cause of cyst formation. The accumulation and analysis of many, at present, "atypical" cases for clarification of its nature, will, it is hoped, lead to a new nomenclature for this condition that adequately describes its biological origin.
