Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To assess the role of peritoneal cytology in the management of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma. STUDY DESIGN: A review of the peritoneal fluid cytologic findings in eight selected cases of pancreatic mucinous cystadenocarcinomas. RESULTS: Four of eight cases (50%) were positive for malignant cells. All four patients with positive peritonealcytology had unresectable tumors and extensive intraabdominal metastases. Of the Jour patients with negative cytology, three had unresectable, locally invasive tumors without metastases, and one had a resectable turner confined to the pancreas. CONCLUSION: Peritoneal cytology isfrequently positive in unresectable mucinous cystadenocarcinomas withintraabdominal metastases, but cytology may often be negative in unresectable cases. Therefore, negative cytologic findings in these cases do not reliably ensure resectability, while positive findings clearly correlate with the presence of intraabdominal metastases. A larger study of unselected patients, including more with resectable tumors, willbe required to define the full utility of this technique in preoperative assessment.
