Abstract

Pancreatic solid papillary cystic tumor is a rare neoplasm with an excellent prognosis if surgical excision is complete. We report on a case and review 47 more cases extracted from the published literature to assess the treatment options when solid papillary cystic tumor is considered unresectable. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were beneficial in a limited number of patients, but therapeutic decisions must be made bearing in mind that patients may be long-term survivors without any treatment because of the tumor's slow growth.
