MARTINS FILHO, Euclides Dias et al. Mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas during pregnancy: Case Report. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 187-190. ISSN 1519-3829. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-38292011000200010.
The aim of this study is to report the case of a 20 years old pregnant woman with a mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas. Evidence suggests that this neoplasm is dependent on estrogen-pro-gesterone leading to a significant growth during pregnancy and beyond this a potential malignant degeneration, even low. The reason of this case-study is the rarity of the disease associated with pregnancy in a patient so young. A body-tail pancreatectomy was performed in the second trimester of pregnancy with good maternal and fetal outcomes.
