Non Epithelial Tumours of the Pancreas

Dr Sampurna Roy MD        


Non-epithelial tumours of the pancreas are exceedingly rare and include the following tumours:


- Clear Cell (Sugar) Tumour of the Pancreas

- Pancreatic Schwannoma


- Malignant Lymphoma of the Pancreas

- Leiomyosarcoma of the Pancreas

- Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumour of the Pancreas

- Carcinosarcoma of the Pancreas

Whatever the site of origin, most mesenchymal pancreatic tumours are hypervascular, heterogeneous and have a necrotic centre.
