Pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration: A case report and literature review



Pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration: A case report and literature review



Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics 11 Suppl: C280



Pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is a rare pancreatic neoplasm. In this study, we report the case of a 67-year-old male who was admitted with epigastric pain, which began during the previous week. The planar imaging of the magnetic resonance imaging sequence detected oval shapes in the neck and tail of the pancreas. Endoscopic ultrasonography showed low-echo lumps at these sites. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration was performed on the pancreatic masses. Pathology results indicated that the tissue taken from the pancreas was consistent with small cell NEC. We also review the current published literature on pancreatic NEC.
