Resumen

CIENFUEGOS, Javier A. et al. Agenesis of the dorsal pancreas: systematic review of a clinical challenge. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.8, pp.479-484. ISSN 1130-0108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17235/reed.2016.4474/2016.

Background: Agenesis of the dorsal pancreas is a rare malformation. Since 1911 and until 2008, 53 cases have been reported. Several authors have recently described the association of this anomaly with neoplasia of the ventral pancreas, thus we performed a systematic review of the literature from 2008 to 2015. Methods: A systematic review of the Medline and ISI Web of Science Databases from 2008 until 2015 was carried out, and 30 articles which met the inclusion criteria were identified that included a total of 53 patients: 7 children and 46 adults. Conclusions: Although dorsal pancreatic agenesis is a rare malformation, given its association with non-alcoholic pancreatitis and neoplasia of the residual pancreas, physicians should maintain an expectant attitude.
