Diagnoses of cystic lesions in the pancreas are increasing in clinical practice because of the wider use of imaging studies. The selection of appropriate treatment depends on the ability to distinguish between benign and malignant cysts. However, cystic pancreatic neoplasms are sometimes misdiagnosed as pseudocysts and treated improperly. We experienced a case of mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas misdiagnosed as a pseudocyst, which had a communication between the cyst and the main pancreatic duct.
