Abstract

Intrapancreatic lipoma is a mesenquimal tumor that currently is still considered a strange entity. There are numerous hypotheses about its pathophysiology; however, none has been clarified. Diagnosis is usually incidental, and computed tomography has been performed for other indications, with high sensibility and specificity, making histopathology confirmation unnecessary, hence suggesting image-follow up solely.
