Lymphoma Mimicking Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report

Serkan UNLU, Aysegul SAGIR KAHRAMAN, Serkan ONER.

Abstract
Background: Pancreatic lymphoma is very rare and occurs below <1%. Because clinical signs and symptoms are similar to pancreatic adenocarcinoma, diagnosis of pancreatic lymphoma is usually very difficult. We aimed to present Magnetic Resonance (MR) findings of a pancreatic lymphoma mimicking pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
Case Presentation: The case was pathologically diagnosed with Diffuse B-cell lymphoma and there were no jaundice findings. Obstruction was not present in the structure other than being pushed into the veins. There was a diffusion restriction without necrosis with low ADC values parallel to increased cellularity. Apart from these, the table in the distinction between lymphoma and adenocarcinoma is helpful in other findings.
Conclusion: It is useful to know that MRI and diffuse MRI in pancreatic lymphoma may provide useful information as well as a diffuse restriction in both due to adenocarcinoma and lymphoma elevated cellularity

Key words: pancreatic lymphoma, pancreatic carcinoma
