The most important distinction is between low-grade cells and high-grade cells since it is the high-grade cells that will represent a high-risk feature for malignancy. MCN are lined by mucinous epithelial cells similar to gastric-type epithelial cells. The progression from low-grade to high-grade cyst-lining cells of an MCN is similar to that of the low-grade dysplastic gastric-type cyst-lining cells of IPMN. Cytological features associated with various grades of dysplasia (low, intermediate, and high) have been described for IPMN [22, 31–35].
