Cystic tumours of Pancreas, though heterogenous group pathologically, account for approximately 10-15% of all cystic lesions of Pancreas. Because of the availability of modern imaging methods the tumours are diagnosed more frequently. Pancreatic cystic tumours Unilocular or Multilocular are to be differentiated from the pseudocyst. They also need to be differentiated from benign Serous cystadenoams as they have very little potential to become malignant. But Mucinous cystadenoams are to be differentiated from mutinous cystuadenocarcinoma. This is important from the point of Outcome of these cancers is better than a solid adenocarcinoma of Pancreas. Here we present a case of 29 years female patient referred to us with a CT scan diagnosis of Pseudocyst of body & tail of Pancreas. She came with symptoms of Pain in Upper abdomen, Lump in abdomen.
