Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas are known to be rare and difficult to be recognize because they mimic other unrelated tumors (neuroendocrine, solid pseudopapillary) with different clinical behavior. Especially in the setting of inoperable patients, fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), core needle biopsy (FNAB) and immunocyto/histochemistry (ICC/IHC) play a crucial role in the differential diagnosis. The biological material available for ICC tests obtained by minimal invasive procedures is usually limited. Aim of the current study was to evaluate diagnostic panel based on a limited number of ICC markers for typing preoperatively ACC of the pancreas.

Bcl-10, trypsin and synaptophysin helps recognize acinar cell and mixed acinar neuroendocrine cell carcinoma of the pancreas on both preoperative cytological samples and needle biopsy specimens

Abstract

Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas are known to be rare and difficult to be recognize because they mimic other unrelated tumors (neuroendocrine, solid pseudopapillary) with different clinical behavior. Especially in the setting of inoperable patients, fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), core needle biopsy (FNAB) and immunocyto/histochemistry (ICC/IHC) play a crucial role in the differential diagnosis. The biological material available for ICC tests obtained by minimal invasive procedures is usually limited. Aim of the current study was to evaluate diagnostic panel based on a limited number of ICC markers for typing preoperatively ACC of the pancreas.
