Abstract

A patient with malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) coexistent with mucinous cystadenoma of the pancreas is reported. Primary MFH of the pancreas is rare, with only six patients reported in the world medical literature. A patient with MFH coexistent with a pancreatic mucinous epithelial tumor has not been reported previously, although two patients with pseudosarcomatous tumor associated with mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the pancreas have been reported. Mural nodules of similar histologic appearance have been reported in ovarian mucinous tumors. The authors believe this to be the first report of the occurrence of MFH in mucinous cystadenoma of the pancreas.
