Acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas: Cytologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features

Academic Article


  • Acinar carcinoma is extremely rare. In this report, we present the clinical and pathologic features of three cases that we have encountered in a busy EUS-FNA service. All 3 cases were diagnosed on final histology using immunostains and electron microscopy. Our cases demonstrated the rarity of this neoplasm and the need for ancillary testing for accurate diagnosis.
