Abstract
Pancreatic pseudocysts are focal fluid collections that develop as a result of inflammatory diseases of the pancreas. They are managed conservatively or with a drainage procedure. Their radiological appearance can mimic cystic neoplasms of the pancreas. Pancreatic cystic neoplasms include various neoplasms with a wide range of malignant potential. Here, we report a patient with a pancreatic pseudocyst that presented with macrocystic attributes on endoscopic ultrasound. (Gut Liver 2010;4:270-273)
Keywords: Pancreatic pseudocyst; Endoscopic ultrasound
