Peripancreatic fluid collections: vascular structures masquerading as pseudocysts


Peripancreatic fluid collections: vascular structures masquerading as pseudocysts



Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal 43(4): 267-272



ISSN/ISBN: 0846-5371

PMID: 1638424

Five patients with splanchnic arterial aneurysms and one patient with a tortuous splenic vessel presented with peripancreatic masses that exhibited an anechoic portion in real-time ultrasonography (US) images; the masses were incorrectly diagnosed as pseudocysts. In two patients a vascular abnormality was suspected, and colour-flow Doppler and pulsed Doppler US were performed; these techniques showed the presence of pseudoaneurysms. In the other four patients the possibility of a pseudoaneurysm was not entertained until further studies had been performed. These results emphasize the need for colour-duplex US evaluation of all peripancreatic fluid collections during the initial US examination to avoid the misinterpretation of an aneurysm or a pseudoaneurysm as a simple or complex fluid collection and to prevent the potential disaster of performing biopsy, surgery or other interventions.
