Case Study
The article presents an answer to a case study about a diagnosis of an epidermoid cyst. A pancreatic pseudocyst, transgastric endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage of the cystic lesion was performed. This mass was diagnosed as an accessory spleen on the basis of significant signal decrease as the splenic parenchyma on post-contrast T2-weighted image of superparamagnetic iron oxide-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging.
