1/21. adult medullary cystic disease of the kidney and pancreatic cystic disease: a new association.

    A rare case of a woman with the adult form of medullary cystic disease associated with pancreatic cysts in pancreas divisum is described, which suggests that specific attention should be paid to computed tomography findings in the presence of pancreatic and renal cysts.

2/21. Pancreatic lesions in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome: the coexistence of metastatic tumors from renal cell carcinoma and multiple cysts.

    Multiple cysts and benign cystadenomas of the pancreas have been documented occasionally in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (HLS); however, the malignant involvement of the pancreas in HLS is very rare. We report a case of HLS in which metastatic tumors from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) coexisted with multiple cysts in the pancreas. A 22-year-old woman with a history of HLS had undergone a partial resection of the left kidney for RCC 3 years earlier, at which time a solid mass in the pancreatic tail and multiple pancreatic cysts were also incidentally detected by computed tomography. Over the following 3 years, the mass enlarged slightly, thus raising suspicions that it might be a primary neoplasm of the pancreas. She was referred to the Department of Surgery and Surgical Basic science to undergo surgery. In addition to the tumor in the pancreatic tail, however, further tumors in the pancreatic head were also disclosed by preoperative celiac arteriography and intraoperative palpation and ultrasonography. A distal pancreatectomy was performed, because the enucleation of all the tumors in the pancreatic head was technically impossible and because the patient declined a total pancreatectomy. A histologic examination of the mass in the pancreatic tail revealed metastatic RCC. This case emphasizes that metastatic disease should be included in the differential diagnosis when evaluating the pancreas in a patient with HLS.

3/21. von hippel-lindau disease masquerading as autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.

    The diagnostic confusion in differentiating the various causes of renal cystic diseases in adults is well documented. This confusion can include misclassifications between autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and von hippel-lindau disease (VHL). We describe such a case of VHL. A review of the literature and of the patients in our database regarding typical features of each disease, mean age of onset, and frequency of these features was undertaken to provide helpful differentiating features. Pancreatic cysts are one differentiating feature. In VHL, pancreatic cysts can occur in 70% of patients, often are multiple, and rarely may cause exocrine or endocrine insufficiency. Pancreatic islet cell tumors occur. In ADPKD, pancreatic cysts are found in only 9% of patients, usually are single and asymptomatic, generally occur in conjunction with cystic liver disease, and are not found in children or unaffected family members. Pancreatic malignancies do not occur with increased frequency in ADPKD. A different pattern, especially in patients without a strong family history of ADPKD, may be a clue to VHL masquerading as ADPKD. Genetic mutation screening of the VHL gene should be used in these patients.

4/21. Fine needle aspiration cytology of a pancreatic cyst in a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. A case report.

    BACKGROUND: Solitary cysts occur in approximately 10% of patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), and fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) can be beneficial in evaluating complications related to the cysts and in excluding malignancies and other cystic lesions that can occur in these patients. CASE: FNAC was performed on a benign epithelial cyst in a symptomatic, 25-year-old, white female with ADPKD. The aspirate consisted of scattered small, flat groups of uniform epithelial cells arranged in a honey-comb fashion. CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first FNAC report of a pancreatic cyst in ADPKD.

5/21. A 34-week-old male fetus with short rib polydactyly syndrome (SRPS) type I (Saldino-Noonan) with pancreatic cysts.

    A 34-week-old male fetus (first diagnosed at 28 weeks of gestation) with short rib polydactyly type I Saldino-noonan syndrome is presented in this study. In the postmortem examination of the fetus, pancreatic dysplasia, multiple cysts and multicystic dysplastic kidneys, omphalomesenteric cyst, ascites, malrotation, micropenis, undescended testes, bilateral inguinal hernia and hydrops were observed. The parents were first-degree cousins. One male and one female sibling had similar findings and both had died after birth. Only a four-year-old healthy daughter was alive. We believe these findings will be helpful in the differential diagnosis of further lethal skeletal dysplasia cases.

6/21. Laparoscopic enucleation of solitary true pancreatic cyst in an adult.

    Solitary or true pancreatic cyst is a very rare pathologic condition; only a few cases are reported in literature. We report a case of a 22-year-old woman with a symptomatic true pancreatic cyst located in proximity to the pancreatic head, duodenum, vena cava, biliary tree, and right kidney, which was enucleated through a laparoscopic approach. Laparoscopic ultrasound imaging allowed the surgeon to better identify the morphology of the cyst and its relationship with the adjacent structures. The treatment is briefly reviewed and discussed.

7/21. Prenatal sonographic appearance of congenital bile duct dilatation associated with renal-hepatic-pancreatic dysplasia.

    We report the prenatal sonographic features of congenital bile duct dilatation associated with renal-hepatic-pancreatic dysplasia. The condition was seen at 22 weeks of gestation and led to termination of pregnancy. This is the first description of congenital bile duct dilatation using prenatal sonography. It is also the first report of a case in which the features of dysplasia were evident in all three of the organs which may be affected, the kidneys, liver and pancreas.

8/21. Pancreatic lesions in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome: report of a case.

    von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome is a rare autosomal inherited disorder. A germline mutation predisposes carriers to the development of multiple tumors, the most common of which are hemangioblastoma, renal cell carcinoma, pheochromocytoma, and islet cell and cystic tumors of the pancreas, the kidney, and epididymis. Visceral manifestations, such as cystadenoma of the pancreas, occur late in its course. We report the case of a 20-year old woman who presented with vomiting and dizziness, most probably caused by a palpable mass in the upper abdomen, diagnosed as pancreatic cysts. She had undergone surgery for cerebellar hemangioblastoma 4 years previously. In view of her young age, preservation of pancreatic function was crucial because of the expense of enzyme therapy and the difficulties with follow-up. Therefore, we performed cyst enucleation and distal pancreatectomy, which relieved her symptoms. She has been well with no sign of recurrence for 18 months. This case highlights that a well-prepared surgical procedure can cure a patient with pancreatic cysts caused by VHL, living in difficult socioeconomic conditions.

9/21. Congenital true pancreatic cyst: a rare case.

    Congenital true pancreatic cysts are very rarely seen in children. We report magnetic resonance imaging features of a case of congenital true pancreatic cyst with a high level of enzymatic activity which, to the best of our knowledge, have not previously been reported. A 4-month-old boy was admitted to our clinic with a history of abdominal swelling for one month. A mobile, smooth, non-tender mass was palpated on the left side of the abdomen during physical examination. ultrasonography and MR imaging revealed a bilocular cystic mass sized 9.5 x 8 x 6 cm. The spleen was displaced superiorly, whereas the left kidney was displaced posteriorly. Obliteration of the peripancreatic fat planes between the cystic mass and tail of the pancreas was observed. During abdominal surgical exploration, the pancreatic tail was larger than normal, and a pancreatic cyst arising from the tail of the pancreas was observed. Total cystectomy was performed with distal pancreatectomy. Although it is extremely rare in children, congenital true pancreatic cysts should be diagnostically considered in cases involving a cystic mass neighboring the pancreas. MR imaging is not helpful in differential diagnosis of other cysts originating from neighboring organs. Total excision with distal pancreatectomy and splenic preservation are advised for distal pancreatic cysts.

10/21. Pancreatic involvement in von hippel-lindau disease: report of two cases and review of the literature.

    BACKGROUND: Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominant multicancer syndrome caused by the germline mutation of a tumor suppressor gene. Affected individuals develop benign and malignant tumors of the central nervous system, kidneys, adrenal glands, pancreas, and reproductive system. Although VHL disease is mainly diagnosed after the detection of central nervous system tumors, they may not always be the first presentation. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a patient presenting with pancreatic cysts for whom the final genetic diagnosis of VHL disease was formulated. During management, the use of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) proved to be valid in the characterization of the pancreatic lesions. family screening also revealed the genetic mutation in the patient's son and imaging investigations showed the presence of multiple tumors. The diagnosis allowed us to plan appropriate follow-up for both, thus improving their life expectancy. CONCLUSIONS: Gastroenterologists should be aware of the frequent pancreatic involvement in VHL disease and EUS can be useful in this setting.
