Figure. From: Current Trends in Pancreatic Cystic Neoplasms.

Fluid carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and amylase concentrations in resected cystic lesions of the pancreas. A, Carcinoembryonic antigen level in the fluid aspirated from 79 resected cystic lesions of the pancreas. IPMN indicates intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm; MCN, mucinous cystic neoplasm; and SCA, serous cystadenoma. “Other” includes benign uncharacterized cysts (4), cystic neuroendocrine tumors (3), solid pseudopapillary tumor (2), ductal adenocarcinoma (2), enteric duplication cysts (2), cystic acinar cell carcinoma (1), acinar cell cystadenoma (1), and lymphangioma (1). To convert CEA to micrograms per liter, multiply by 1. B, Amylase concentration in the fluid aspirated from 66 resected cystic lesions of the pancreas. “Other” includes cystic neuroendocrine tumors (3), ductal adenocarcinoma (2), enteric duplication cysts (2), benign uncharacterized cysts (1), solid pseudopapillary tumor (2), cystic acinar cell carcinoma (1), retention cyst (1), and lymphangioma (1). To convert amylase to microkatals per liter, multiply by 0.0167.
