Descriptor English: Pancreatic Cyst
Descriptor Spanish: Quiste Pancreático
Descriptor quiste pancreático
Scope note: Quiste verdadero del páncreas que se diferencia del PSEUDOQUISTE PANCREÁTICO, que es mucho más común, porque posee una mucosa epitelial que lo recubre. Los quistes pancreáticos se clasifican como congénitos, de retención, neoplásicos, parasitarios, enterógenos o dermoides. Los quistes congénitos se presentan a menudo como quistes solitarios, aunque pueden ser múltiples. Los quistes de retención se forman por dilatación de los conductos pancreáticos a consecuencia de la obstrucción ductal. (Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p. 4145)

Scope note: A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
