Abstract

Morphologic irregularities of the pancreatic duct are often noted on abdominal imaging studies obtained for unrelated symptoms or conditions. We report the case of a patient who was found to have an incidental, isolated pancreatic duct dilatation on multiple imaging studies and who was found to have a nonfunctioning pancreatic endocrine neoplasm at resection. His prognosis is excellent based on the histology of the lesion and a curative resection. This case highlights the importance of fully investigating incidental pancreatic duct abnormalities regardless of the setting in which they are found.
