ABSTRACT


Introduction: Pancreatic dermoid cyst is a rare, benign germ cell tumour and part of differential diagnosis for cystic neoplasm of pancreas, where it shows a slight preference for the pancreatic head.

Case Report: We report a case of dermoid cyst of pancreas in a 17-year-old female patient. Patient presented with epigastric pain, anorexia and lump in epigastric region. CECT showed a well marginated cystic lesion with tiny speck of calcification in wall and fatty component anteriorly in epigastric region in midline and towards right arising from anterior aspect of head of pancreas. The fat planes surrounding the lesion are normal. The CBD was seen lying on posterior aspect of the lesion.

Conclusion: Pre-operative diagnosis is difficult and it is usually diagnosed intraoperatively or by histopathological examination of the specimen.

Keywords: Dermoid, Epigastric, Pancreatic cyst
