Context Despite the recent progress of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, survival rates of pancreatic adenocarcinoma remain poor, mainly due to late diagnosis. Case report We report the case of a 56-year-old man who was diagnosed with a symptomatic intraductal papillary mucinous tumor of the pancreas located in the uncus. This tumor was associated with a concurrent stenosis of the isthmic pancreatic duct which resulted in a distal dilation. A Whipple procedure was performed. During the procedure, a concomitant adenocarcinoma was diagnosed 2 cm from the primary intraductal papillary mucinous tumor, causing the isthmic stenosis. A second resection was then performed to the left of the pancreatic isthmus, and adjuvant chemotherapy was performed. The patient is well and without any sign of recurrence 7 months after surgery. Conclusion We discuss the possibility that intraductal papillary mucinous tumors may be a “red flag” enabling earlier diagnosis of a concurrent pancreatic adenocarcinoma arising in another area of the pancreas.
