Figure a. Pancreatic adenocarcinoma in a 56-year-old man who presented with symptoms of anemia. He was treated for sebaceous adenomas in his 40s and for duodenal cancer at age 47 years. Axial (a) and coronal (b) contrast-enhanced CT images show a 5-cm ill-defined hypoattenuating mass (arrows), representing adenocarcinoma, in the pancreatic tail. The tumor occludes the splenic vein (arrowhead in a) and encases the splenic artery (arrowhead in b). The patient was found to have a germline MSH2 mutation. | Cox, V. L., Saeed Bamashmos, A.
