CT appearance of incidental pancreatic lipomas: a case series

, : CT appearance of incidental pancreatic lipomas: a case series. Abdominal Imaging 31(3): 332-338

Pancreatic lipomas are rare benign lesions, with only 15 examples documented in the current literature. We describe five cases of intrapancreatic lipomas from a single institution, all incidentally found using computed tomography within a 14-month period. Computed tomography depicted lipomas as homogeneous, nonenhancing, well-marginated lesions with a density coefficient consistent with adipose tissue.
