Definition and classification of Mucinous cystic neoplasms. A cyst-forming epithelial neoplasm that usually does not communicate with the pancreatic ductal system, and is composed of columnar, mucin-producing epithelium associated with ovarian-type subepithelial stroma. This neoplasm occurs almost exclusively in women. Noninvasive mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCN) are categorized as mucinous cystic neoplasm with low-grade, moderate or high-grade dysplasia (“carcinoma in situ”). If there is an invasive carcinoma component, the lesions are designated as mucinous cystic neoplasm with an associated invasive carcinoma.

Abstract

Definition and classification of Mucinous cystic neoplasms. A cyst-forming epithelial neoplasm that usually does not communicate with the pancreatic ductal system, and is composed of columnar, mucin-producing epithelium associated with ovarian-type subepithelial stroma. This neoplasm occurs almost exclusively in women. Noninvasive mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCN) are categorized as mucinous cystic neoplasm with low-grade, moderate or high-grade dysplasia (“carcinoma in situ”). If there is an invasive carcinoma component, the lesions are designated as mucinous cystic neoplasm with an associated invasive carcinoma.
