Received Date: Jan 29, 2018 / Accepted Date: Feb 08, 2018 / Published Date: Feb 15, 2018
Polycystic disease of the pancreas is a rare disease most often seen in association with polycystic kidney disease and Von Hippel Lindau syndrome. It is characterized by the presence of single or multiple simple congenital cysts in the pancreatic parenchyma secondary to developmental defects. These cysts are benign in nature and do not communicate with the main pancreatic duct. We report a case of an elderly male with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease incidentally detected to have multiple simple pancreatic cysts.
