The aim of our study was to detect the various ethiological factors for pancreatic pseudo cysts formation. Patients presenting with pancreatitis were further evaluated for pseudo pancreatic cyst. Characteristics along with location of cysts were compared and unusual location for pseudo pancreatic cyst studied.
Methodology: A prospective and observational study of 20 adult patients, (16 male patients and 4 female patients) with Acute and Chronic pancreatitis was undertaken from November 2018 to June 2019. CT scans of 20 patients with acute and chronic pancreatitis were reviewed. Of these in the patients with pseudocyst formation (16 of 20 patients), the location of intrapancreatic, peripancreatic and distal fluid collections in the setting of acute and chronic pancreatitis was studied.
Results: Incidence of pseudocyst formation was high in age group of 41-50 yrs. (40%). Male and female ratio is 4:1. In the present findings, incidence of ethiology is the chronic pancreatitis 10 (55%). The commonest site incidence is lesser sac 9 (45%), and second commonest site is head region 5 (25%). There was no significant change in the levels of serum amylase values. We observed common symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.
Conclusion: Most common locations are the lesser sac. Chronic pancreatitis is the most common cause for the formation of psuedocysts. The incidence more in male than the females.
