Özet

Background: Mucinous pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) express different mucin (MUC) types according to their histomorphologic types. High cystic fluid viscosity may help in the detection of mucinous PCLs. We hypothesized that high cystic fluid viscosity may be suggestive of a certain MUC type in mucinous PCLs.
