Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to present the typical and atypical manifestations of serous cystadenoma, which can be visualized with cross-sectional imaging.

CONCLUSION. Serous cystadenomas of the pancreas have various distinguishing imaging features. Typically, a serous cystadenoma is morphologically classified as having either a polycystic, honeycomb, or oligocystic pattern. Atypical manifestations of serous cystadenoma can include giant tumors with ductal dilatation, intratumoral hemorrhages, solid variants, unilocular cystic tumors, interval growth, and a disseminated form.
