ABSTRACT
Two cases of unusual giant carcinoma of the pancreas are presented. Each presented with a large tumor mass with or without cystic change, either in the head or tail portion of the pancreas. A pleomorphic gaint cell carcinoma variant (case 1) differed from an epulis type (case 2) with nuclear atypism of giant cells, but widespread metastasis in both cases reflected the accountability of spindle cell element as an important parameter for the determination of their biological behavior.
