Abstract The incidence of cystic pancreatic neoplasms increased in the past decade, due to the recent advances in multidetector computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging; several pancreatic cysts are incidentally encountered during diagnostic exams performed for non-pancreatic diseases. Indeed, cystic pancreatic tumors are currently considered relatively rare, accounting for approximately 10\% of all pancreatic neoplasms. Serous cystadenoma, mucinous cystadenoma, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms and solid-pseudopapillary tumor represent about 90\% of all pancreatic primary cystic tumours. The non-optimal diagnostic preoperative accuracy in distinguishing benign from malignant cystic lesions ensures that up till now there are no well-defined guidelines regarding the management of cystic pancreatic neoplasms. Imaging findings often do not allow the diagnosis, because there is a considerable overlap among the cystic lesions; the best pre-operative characterization is obtained by the association of all diagnostic procedures available. For their different histology and behavior, cystic pancreatic neoplasms need to be managed according to various factors. In this review, the main elements necessary for their management are assessed--radiological features, tumour dimensions, patients' characteristics, the mode of clinical presentation and the associated oncologic markers. A multidisciplinary approach--including gastroenterologists, radiologists and surgeons--should be adopted in order to perform a differential diagnosis and a correct management.
