Abstract

Mucinous pancreatic cysts are well reported to transform into pancreatic adenocarcinoma, whereas nonmucinous cysts are mostly benign with low risk for malignant transformation. Nonsurgical methods of differentiating mucinous and nonmucinous pancreatic cysts are challenging and entail a multi investigational approach. Low intracystic glucose levels have been evaluated in multiple studies for its accuracy in differentiating mucinous from nonmucinous cysts of the pancreas.
