Pancreatic pseudocysts of the duodenum

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 1979 Nov;133(5):827-31. doi: 10.2214/ajr.133.5.827.


A pancreatic pseudocyst within the wall of the duodenum is presented. Its radiographic features were analyzed and comprehensively compared with 10 proved cases. These pseudocysts can be intramural or extrinsic severely compressive lesions. The occurrence of these pseudocysts at multiple sites throughout the gastrointestinal tract emphasizes the need to consider them in the differential diagnosis of severe extrinsic compressive or intramural lesions.
