[Intraductal papillary adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. Case report and review of the literature].

[Article in French]


In 1974, cephalic duodeno-pancreatectomy was performed in a 48-year old patient with papillary adenocarcinoma within the pancreatic duct. The patient is still alive without overt recurrence. The authors emphasize the rarity of such lesions (8 cases published to date), the diagnostic value of retrograde contrast radiography of the main pancreatic duct, the need for wide pancreatectomy, the quality of survival and the possibility of cure.
