dc.description.abstract Background: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours are uncommon neoplasms which may rarely be cystic. Differentiation from other more common cystic neoplasms may be difficult. Aims: To describe the morphologic, cytologic, and cyst fluid characteristics of cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours. Methods: Retrospective analysis of consecutive patients referred for endosonographic evaluation of pancreatic cysts at four centres. Results: 27 patients (12 males) with cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours were identified. Prior to endosonography, this tumour was suspected in only 2 patients based on presenting symptoms (7.4percent). The median cyst size was 35. mm (range 8-80. mm). Wall thickening was identified in 13 cases. The median carcinoembryonic antigen level was 1.25 (range 0.6-500). Fine needle aspiration cytology in 17 of 24 patients confirmed neuroendocrine tumour (71percent). In 8 of 9 patients who had needle targeting of the cyst wall, cytology was consistent with neuroendocrine tumour (88.9percent). 18 patients underwent surgical resection. Conclusions: Cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour was rarely suspected, including by cross-sectional imaging. Wall thickening was identified in approximately half of cases on endosonography. Cyst fluid was typically non-viscous with very low carcinoembryonic antigen levels. Targeting the wall during fine needle aspiration had a high diagnostic yield and should be performed. © 2013 Editrice Gastroenterologica Italiana S.r.l.
