Abstract

We report a rare case of a foregut duplication cyst of the pancreas containing respiratory epithelium in a healthy adolescent male who presented with recurrent abdominal pain secondary to pancreatitis. The abnormality was revealed on computed tomography performed to evaluate severe abdominal pain radiating to the back. Further imaging (ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging) confirmed that the lesion was a cyst with no apparent pancreatic ductal communication. Elective laparoscopic resection of the cyst was performed with complete resolution of the patient's symptoms.
