Low-density mass in pancreas or Pancreatic pseudocyst in a young man
A 23-year-old patient who came to hospital because of abdominal pain. He was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis for ten days before. He has a blood test with high level of amylase about 916 U/L. On CT Scanner there is an abnormal finding of pancreas actually. To be more detailed, the whole body and the tail of his pancreas were replaced by low-density mass (cyst) that surrounded by an enhancing wall. Beside that on ct scanner we also found some fluid in two cavities of his lung and Morrison’s space as well. As a matter of fact, there are lots of complications in acute pancreatitis such as pancreatic abscess and pancreatic pseudocyst but in practice the last may be seen more often.
