Context Mucinous cystic neoplasms are cystic lesions of the pancreas with a relevant risk to progress to invasive cancer. Mucinous cystic neoplasms are characterized by the presence of an ovarian-like stroma and its almost exclusive occurrence in women. Case report Here we report the case of a 41-year old patient with a known cystic lesion that became symptomatic briefly after pregnancy. A pancreatic left resection was carried out and histopathology revealed mucinous cystic neoplasms with expression of estrogen, progesterone, and luteinized hormone receptors in the stromal compartment. Conclusion Together with the documented growth during pregnancy, it suggests a hormonal influence on the tumor biological of mucinous cystic neoplasms. Cystic lesions in women of childbearing age require therefore special attention.
