Evaluation and management of pancreatic cystic lesions
Lee LS

Abstract Objective: To review the evaluation and management of pancreatic cystic lesions. Methods: Review of the literature in the context of a clinical case. Results: Pancreatic cysts are increasingly recognized due to the frequent use of abdominal imaging. Accurate characterization of these cysts is important not only to identify premalignant lesions that will require surgical resection, but also to allow conservative management of many cystic lesions that will not require surgery with its morbidity. Although reliable biomarkers are lacking, a wide spectrum of diagnostic tools are available to evaluate pancreatic cystic lesions, including radiologic, endoscopic, laboratory, and pathologic analysis. Conclusion: Pancreatic cysts present a challenge to clinicians. Integrating all available information combined with the patientís characteristics offers the best approach to these at times confounding lesions.
