INTRODUCTION Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), first reported in 1982 as "mucin-producing tumor" by Kazuhiko Ohashi of Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, is a well recognised category of pancreatic neoplasms characterised by intraductal, often papillary proliferation of neoplastic mucinous cells, which produce thick mucinous secretion leading to cystic dilatation of the pancreatic ducts (1,2).
24) Of interest, these cancers may progress through an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) precursor pathway.
6) Pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias are not the only precursors of invasive pancreatic cancer: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms and mucinous cystic neoplasms, for example, are also preinvasive stages of carcinoma, (7) but PanINs are the most common precursor of conventional ductal adenocarcinomas of the pancreas, and they are the subject of this review.
