This type of carcinoma accounts for about 1% of all pancreatic cancers and is commoner in elderly males who have a history of cigarette smoking.

There is usually a rapid progression of disease and widespread dissemination, especially if untreated. 

The tumour is successfully treated by chemotherapy.
