Surgical Treatment of Serous Cystadenomas Neoplasm of the Pancreas
Serous cystadenomas neoplasms (SCNs) of the pancreas is a relatively uncommon cystic lesion, firstly reported by Compagno in 1978 . Approximately 60% of the SCNs affect women with the mean age at presentation of 60 years old. SCN may generate in any portion of the pancreas but most frequently occurs in body and tail. In rare cases, SCNs can involve almost the full length of the pancreas. The diameter of the tumor ranges from less than 1 cm to more than 20 cm, with the mean size of 4–5 cm on resection [2, 3].
