Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The solid-cystic pseudopapillary neoplasm is a rare pancreatic tumor having indolent course and amenable to complete excision. This is a report of two cases of this tumour, diagnosed on fine needle aspiration cytology. One of the cases had complete surgical excision of the mass and subsequent histological evaluation. This benign and rare neoplasm of pancreas often causes few symptoms. The characteristic cytomorphological features point towards the diagnosis.
