Primary signet ring cell carcinoma of the pancreas (PSRCCP) is an extremely rare diagnosis that has not been extensively studied in literature. Primary and metastatic neoplasms to the pancreas may exhibit cytomorphological similarities to signet ring cells, posing diagnostic challenges. In this article, we review PSRCCP and provide a study of several primary pancreatic neoplasms that may mimic the appearance of PSRCCP upon cytopathology evaluation, shedding light on the existence of this dilemma, and helping cytopathologists in navigating similar scenarios in their practice.
