Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine the association of PMH and FH of pancreatic (PDAC) and non-pancreatic cancers with IPMN malignant risk. Methods: A retrospective review of a prospective database of IPMN patients undergoing resection was performed to assess FH and PMH. Results: FH of PDAC was present in 13% of 362 included patients. Of these, 8% had at least one first degree relative (FDR) with PDAC. The rate of PDAC positive FH in non-invasive versus invasive IPMN patients was 14% and 8%, respectively (p = 0.3). In main duct IPMN patients, FH (44%) and PMH of non-pancreatic cancer (16%) was higher than that seen in branch duct IPMN (FH 29%; PMH 6%; p = 0.004 and 0.008). Conclusions: FH of PDAC is not associated with IPMN malignant progression. FH and PMH of non-pancreatic cancer is associated with main duct IPMN, the subtype with the highest rate of invasive transformation.
