Serous cystadenoma of the pancreas is a diagnosis being entertained with increasing frequency. The histopathologic findings, diagnostic strategy, differential diagnosis, and treatment strategy of these generally benign but sometimes symptomatic lesions are discussed. Based on the available case series, surgical resection should be considered in good-risk patients with symptomatic tumors, with tumors at least 4 cm in maximum diameter, or in whom a more worrisome diagnosis cannot be excluded.
