Giant Pancreatic Pseudocyst Complicating Twin Pregnancy with Spontaneous Resolution: Case Report
Asian Journal of Research in Surgery,
Pancreatic pseudocyst during pregnancy is a rare pathology whose management lacks of hindsight, with only 10 cases reported in the literature since 1980. Spontaneous resolution in 11 to 16% of cases has been described in the literature.
We report a case of giant pseudocyst of the pancreas during pregnancy spontaneously resolving.
A 19-year-old pregnant female presented with giant pancreatic pseudocysts which was managed conservatively, evolving towards a spontaneous resolution after delivery.
