Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pseudocysts are localised fluid collections, usually developing as a complication of acute or chronic pancreatitis. Pancreatic ductal or parenchymal calcifications are commonly seen in routine radiological imaging, but calcification of pseudocyst is extremely rare. Calcified pseudocysts have been reported in literature as case reports, but a calcified pseudocyst in the lesser sac, without underlying pancreatic calcification, has not been reported. We report a case of a pancreatic pseudocyst with a calcified wall, requiring surgical excision and histological examination confirming the diagnosis.
