Background: Cystic pancreatic lesions (LCP) include inflammatory pseudocysts or mesenchymal and epithelial cystic neoplasms in 80-90% and 10-15% of cases, respectively. Other pancreatic cystic lesions include cysts alone, pancreatic policistose (von Hippel-Lindau syndrome), cystic hydatid cyst and metastasis. The prevalence of LCP is about 3.5%. Objective: Was to investigate the clinical application of Biopsy guided by endoscopic ultrasound in patients with pancreatic cystic lesion, considering demographic, endoscopic and cytological data. Methods: We retrospectively studied 24 patients with pancreatic cystic lesion, regardless of sex and race, from the region of São José do Rio Preto, SP, underwent biopsy puncture guided by endoscopic ultrasound. The ecoguide of the punctures were performed using only 22G needle, and the collection and processing of medical liability endoscopist material.
