Mucinous cystic neoplasm of the liver and left hepatic duct, which imitates intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm
Summary. Mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) of the liver and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of the bile ducts (IPMN-B) are rare tumors that are often difficult to differentiate from other cystic tumors of the liver. The incidence of MCN and IPMN-B in Western countries and, in particular, in Ukraine is very low, so radiologists and surgeons encounter it extremely rarely in daily practice. However, given that these neoplasias are important cholangiocarcinoma precursors, early diagnosis and radical treatment are critical. We present the experience of treating MCN of the liver with intraluminal spread into the left hepatic duct, which mimicked IPMN-B.
