Neonatal congenital pancreatic cyst is rare. It can be isolated or associated to other malformations. Early management is recommended because of possible severe complications. The aim of our work is to report our experience with three newborns with congenital pancreatic cyst. A five year (2010-2015) retrospective study is carried. Data were collected from medical files of three different patients. Diagnosis was prenatal in two patients. The Cyst was associated to Ivemark syndrome in two cases and solitary in one. Cystic complications were infection in one case and pancreatitis with liver cirrhosis in another case. These pancreatic cysts were successfully managed by surgery. One patient succumbed as a result of heart failure. To our knowledge we report the first case of congenital pancreatic cyst complicated with liver cirrhosis. We concluded that prompt diagnosis is important to prevent severe complications. Prognosis is dependent on early management and on life threatening associated malformations.
