Resumen

GABRIELLI N, Mauricio et al. Squamous cell carcinoma primary of the pancreas. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.6, pp.577-582. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262014000600011.

Background: Squamous cells are usually not present in the pancreas. Therefore, primary squamous cell carcinoma of the pancreas (SCCP) is an extremely rare tumor. Case report: We report two cases of SCCP. Case 1: A 77 years-old woman was admitted for upper gastrointestinal bleeding. MDCT scan and endoscopic biopsy showed a carcinoma of the pancreatic head. She underwent a Whipple procedure and definitive biopsy revealed a SCCP. She died 9 years after surgery due to an unrelated disease. To our knowledge, this is the longest survival reported. Case 2: A 63 years-old man was admitted for jaundice. Work-up revealed a pancreatic head mass and liver metastasis. He underwent a palliative double bypass surgery and chemotherapy. Intraoperative biopsy revealed a SCCP. The patient is still alive at 8 months follow-up. Conclusion: Differential diagnoses of pancreatic cancer include SCCP. Long-term survival can be achieved if an early diagnosis and treatment are performed.

Palabras clave : Pancreatic cancer; squamous cell carcinoma; neoplasm.
