Hereditary pancreatic cancer

Abstract

Neoplastic processes of the pancreas can be divided into two broad categories based on the histopathologic properties of the tumor. Tumors of exocrine differentiation include those resembling pancreatic ducts or acinar cells. This category includes pancreatic adenocarcinoma, intraductal mucinous tumors, solid pseudopapillary tumors, and acinar cell carcinoma. Tumors of endocrine differentiation exhibit characteristics of the various islet cell populations and include, among others, insulinomas, glucagonomas, and gastrinomas.
