Others authors also observed the presence of PanIN with different pancreatic lesions such as: intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, mucinous cystic neoplasms, serous cystadenomas, and finally neuroendocrine tumors, or chronic pancreatitis [9, 11-17].
All the neoplastic lesions were unilateral in our study except for three serous cystadenomas, whereas the study done by Parikh U et al[24] states that malignant tumours were more often bilateral than benign tumours.
We present a case of bilateral synchronous benign ovarian neoplasm that comprised a giant teratoma weighing 55 kg, with a coexisting contralateral serous cystadenoma that weighed 2 kg.
Serous cystadenoma was the most common tumour encountered in this study.
The most common benign tumor in this study was mature teratoma, much similar to other studies though Abdullah and Bondagji reported serous cystadenoma as the most common benign tumor.
The diagnosis of a serous cystadenoma can be made with confidence when a lesion demonstrates the classic imaging appearance of a multi lobulated external border, thin enhancing septa in a honeycomb-like appearance, and a central scar, which occasionally calcifies.
Amongst benign tumors, serous cystadenoma was the most frequent subtype, while for the malignant tumors serous cystadenocarcinoma was the commonest.
29) The neoplastic category is subdivided into neoplastic; benign (such as serous cystadenoma, cystic teratoma, and schwannoma), and neoplastic; other (such as well-differentiated PanNETs, solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm [SPN], intraductal papillary neoplasms of the bile duct, and neoplastic mucinous cysts [IPMN, MCN]).
Among benign surface epithelial ovarian neoplasm, serous cystadenoma predominated in comparison to mucinous cystadenomas.
The pathology most consistent with cysts of the large-volume category and thus requiring surgery is serous cystadenoma.
