Genevay et al (12) evaluated 112 histologically confirmed mucin-producing cysts of pancreas and demonstrated that high-grade atypia on cytologic evaluation was the most sensitive predictor of malignancy in mucinous
However, in the case of mucinous
borderline tumors, unilocular cysts are common.

Four cases of serous cyst adenocarcinoma have been reported and two cases of mucinous
cystadenocarcinoma has been reported.
cystadenocarcinomas are malignant mucinous
neoplasms typically seen in an older population.
14) There are, however, several case reports in the literature that describe late metastasis from mucinous
Many now believe appendectomy is curative of non-neoplastic AMs and cystadenomas that fail to meet those criteria, while right hemicolectomy is still recommended in cases of positive appendiceal/ileocolic lymph nodes, synchronous tumors (14) mucinous
cystadenomacarcinomas (2) or cystadenomas involving the appendiceal base.
Smoking was tied to a higher risk of mucinous

For the rs4644 variant of the LGALS3 gene, the CC genotype carrying a mucinous
component was significantly more common than those without a mucinous
Four of these cases were serous cystadenoma, two were mucinous
cystadenoma and one was a paratubal cyst.
cystic tumours are a rare finding of excised urachal masses.
