Both in situ and invasive carcinoma in pancreatic intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) may be more common than previously recognized. Colloid (mucinous) carcinomas and tubular carcinomas occur that resemble conventional ductal adenocarcinomas. Although they are less aggressive as a group than ductal adenocarcinomas, IPMNs may pursue a deadly course, even in the absence of identifiable invasive carcinoma. Conversely, patients with invasive tubular carcinomas arising from IPMNs may have a more favorable clinical course than patients with ductal adenocarcinomas without an IPMN component.
