Abstract

Detection of cystic lesions in the pancreas has increased because of the widespread use of high-resolution diagnostic imaging techniques. Therefore, cystic lesions of the pancreas constitute an increasingly important category with a challenging differential diagnosis. Squamoid cyst of pancreatic ducts is a recently recognized type of cystic lesion in the pancreas in which cystically dilated ducts are lined by non-keratinized squamous epithelium. Although it is clinically known as benign cystic lesion, we experienced its malignant behavior and report here with review of the international literatures.
