Abstract

This review will provide an overview of hepatobiliary mucinous cystic neoplasms and their mimics such as complex appearing benign cysts, intraductal papillary neoplasm of bile ducts, choledochal cysts, infectious cysts, and other cystic neoplasms. Preoperative imaging, particularly abdominal MRI with MRCP, plays a key role in differentiating these entities which differ widely in management. Familiarity with the differentiating imaging features of mucinous cystic neoplasms and their mimics allows radiologists to provide management-guiding reports.
