Undifferentiated carcinoma of the pancreas with osteoclast-like giant cells (UCPOGC) is a very rare neoplasm of the exocrine pancreas of uncertain histogenesis and with poor prognosis. We report a case of a 59-year-old male presenting with isolated elevation of alkaline phosphatase and an otherwise normal hepatic panel who was eventually diagnosed with UCPOGC and metastases to the liver.
