Abstract

We presented the case of a 62-yr-old female with isolated polycystic disease of the pancreas found incidentally at surgery. Polycystic disease of the pancreas is a rare, usually asymptomatic condition often associated with renal and hepatic cysts. Occasionally, it is associated withcystic fibrosis and central nervous system disorders. Review of the literature revealed no other reports of isolated polycystic pancreas disease. No treatment is indicated in the absence of complications or symptoms.
