The recent literature on the intraabdominal pseudocyst emanated as single case reports from such diverse countries as UK, Taiwan, Turkey and USA. Therefore, aided by the establishment of a histopathology data pool, this study concerns 6 cases from the Ibo Ethnic Group in Nigeria. It spanned from 1970 to 1990; the age group was from 6 years to 60 years; and the submissions were by individual physicians who realized that the lesions were simple cysts, including one who named it as pseudocyst.
