Abstract

Serous cystic tumors of the pancreas are unique among pancreatic cystic neoplasms in that they are almost always cytologically monomorphous and biologically benign. The diagnostic challenge for the surgical pathologist is to recognize the spectrum of architectural variation that may lead to misdiagnosis, either preoperatively, and the additional lesions and conditions with which serious tumors may be associated.
