GONZALEZ, CARLOS et al. Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas: Case report. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.6, pp.552-555. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262009000600011.

We report a 21 years old female presenting with a history of 12 months of a lump located in the epigastrium. An abdominal CAT scan showed a tumor located in the pancreatic body and tail. The patient was operated, and during the laparotomy an encapsulated tumor of the pancreas measuring 20 x 15 x 10 cm was found. The body and tail of the pancreas were excised and the pathological study of the surgical piece disclosed an acinar cell carcinoma. In the postoperative period the patient received chemotherapy with gemcitabine and oxaliplatin. After three years of follow up, she is in good conditions and without evidences of tumor relapse.

Palabras clave : Acinar cell tumor of the pancreas; pancreatectomy; chemotherapy.
