ABSTRACTObjective: We describe our experience in the management of pancreatic pseudocysts. Setting: Third level health care hospital. Material and methods: Retrospective study, from January 1994 to December 2002. We analyzed clinical presentation, biochemical alterations, and imagenologic findings. We described the surgical treatment. Results: We found twelve patients from whom eleven were men and only one woman. The clinical findings were pain,abdominal mass, jaundice. Ultrasonographic and Tomographic findings were of high value. Eight cases were treated with cystogastrostomy, three with cystojejunostomy (“Y” Roux), and one with endoscopic procedure. One case with hemorrhage received medical treatment. Conclusions: Pancreatic pseudocysts were diagnosed by clinical, biochemical and radiologic findings. There are differents ways to the pancreatic pseudocyst treatment. In our department the surgical method is the first option.
