Serous cystic neoplasm (SCN) represents 10–16% of cystic pancreatic lesions, first classified by Compagno and Oertel at 1978. In contrast to mucinous cystic neoplasm or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of pancreas which have malignant potential, SCN is thought to be exclusively benign as solitary lesion in nearly all cases. There has been rare reported association between the SCN and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, and few cases were documented their coexistence. In this report, we present the case of SCN of the pancreas with literature review in which synchronous pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasm coexist together.
