Homogeneous tumors such as lymphoma may simulate cysts by ultrasound study. We report the case of a 21-yr-old man who was diagnosed to have a pancreatic pseudo-cyst. At surgery, a lymphoma involving the pancreas was found. Although primary lymphoma of the pancreas is exceptional, this entity should be included in the differential diagnosis of the much more common pancreatic pseudo-cyst.

    Primary pancreatic hydatidosis is exceptional. Only 12 cases have been reported in Spain up to 1982. In large series of patients with hydatidosis, pancreatic involvement occurs in 0.25% of cases. We describe a 55-yr-old man who was admitted to the hospital because of fever, epigastric pain, and...

    The author reflects on the management of branch intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs). It highlights the study of Uehera and colleagues where the researchers find out layers of complexity in the direction of BD-IPMNs. Moreover, it mentions some follow up studies on BD-IPMNs. The...

    Pancreatic heterotopia is generally asymptomatic and occurs in gut-related sites. An antenatally detected subhepatic cyst was finally diagnosed to be a congenital biliary cystic dilatation (without a caudal duodenal communication) with macroscopic Heinrich Type 2 pancreatic heterotopia. The...
