Abstract

We report a case of giardiasis in the pancreas in a patient with diabetes mellitus. The patient is interesting in the following: 1) Giardia lamblia was found only in the pancreas and not in the gall bladder by cytology on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography (ERCP) and by cerulein-secretin test (CST). 2) ERCP revealed multiple small cysts scattered throughout the pancreas. 3) Decreased pancreatic exocrine function was recovered by treatment with metronidazole.
