Context An intra-hepatic pseudocyst is a very rare complication of acute and chronic pancreatitis with less than thirty cases described in the literature. Successful resolution of intra-hepatic pseudocysts with endoscopic transpapillary nasopancreatic drain placement has not previously been described. Case report We report the case of a 34-yearold male with chronic idiopathic non-calcific pancreatitis, anomalous pancreatobiliary junction and a large intra-hepatic pancreatic pseudocyst along with a large abdominal pseudocyst who was successfully treated by endoscopic transpapillary nasopancreatic drainage alone. Conclusion Pancreatic pseudocysts can present as intra-hepatic cystic lesions and communicating intra-hepatic pseudocysts can be successfully treated by endoscopic transpapillary nasopancreatic drainage alone.
