RADIOLOGY: PANCREAS: Case# 32800: PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST (MR). 66-year-old male S/P severe acute pancreatitis in November of 1995 who presents with symptomatic pancreatic fluid collection. 1) Large complex pancreatic collection adjacent to and replacing portions of the pancreatic body in the lesser sac. The collection compresses the body of the stomach anteriorly. Findings are compatible with residual pancreatic necrosis, given the semi-solid nature of the contents of this collection. The location of the collection appears amenable to transgastric endoscopic drainage. 2) Moderate increase in ascites since 12/21/95.
