for a very long time, nearly for the reason that Oberlin and Guerin defined the multifocal foundation of pancreatic cancers and precancerous pancreatic lesions, no very important research facing the complete topic of pancreatic melanoma has been released in France and possibly within the overseas literature. For a few a long time the knowl- area obtained 40years or extra in the past was once now not superior noticeably, notwithstanding the fre- quency ofthe sickness began to bring up in occidental international locations. This has lately replaced, and the development ofthe clinical sciences has unfold to the pancreas. even if the surgical or clinical diagnosis of the main common kind of pancreatic melanoma, exocrine adenocarcinoma, is still very undesirable, contemporary reviews have proven the multiplicityofits pathological types, a few being much less critical in order that healing surgical procedure is feasible. New experimental types, relatively within the hamster, and using carcinogenic medicinal drugs let experimental stories on lesions just like these in guy. Oncologic immunology remains to be at its beginnings yet exhibits promise for analysis and therapy. notwithstanding modem suggestions of imaging - sonography, aspirative cytology, CT test, endoscopic catheterism, arteriography, and perhaps sooner or later nuclear magnetic resonance - haven't but considerably in- fluenced prognosis,they have made the prognosis easierand extra precocious. but in a diseasethat diffuses so quickly to deep lymph nodes, it has now not been proved no matter if early prognosis can increase prognosis.
