    We report a patient whose upper abdominal pain was due to an alcoholic pancreatic pseudocyst with hemorrhage. CT showed a gradually enhancing pancreatic pseudocyst about 6 cm in diameter. It exhibited hyposignal intensity on T2-weighted images and hypersignal intensity on T1-weighted images....
