Our case was assessed as low grade tumor grade I, with abundant large osteoclast giant cells and background cells with minimal atypia and scant mitoses, in accordance with the histopathological grading based on the scoring system of Netherlands Committee on Bone Tumors [9], but also as grade 3--poorly differentiated tumor by using the exocrine pancreatic carcinoma grading from WHO 2010 [16] and as grade 4 according to The American Joint Committee on Cancer staging manual 8th edition [37].

Misdiagnosis maybe related to the following factors: (1) the low incidence of pancreatic TB, the lack of specific clinical manifestations, and a clinician's lack of relevant knowledge; (2) the low clinical significance of general laboratory and biochemical/immunological examinations; and (3) the difficulty in diagnosing pancreatic TB by imaging, as patients may present with masses, cystic lesions, or abscesses as well as mass lesions in most cases of pancreatic carcinoma. The diagnosis of pancreatic TB eventually relies on pathological or microbiological results, including cytology, histology, acid-fast staining, TB culture, and PCR.
