Abstract:   (1122 Views)
The case report: Pancreatic pseudocyst is an encapsulated collection of enzymatic fluid with a well-constructed inflammatory wall bounded by fibrous tissues. However, this remains a rare occurrence in the setting of pregnancy, occurring in as low as 1 in 60,000 gravidas. With such a dearth in the obstetric presentation of pancreatic pseudocysts, no standard treatment guidelines to cater to the condition have been established. In this report, a 24-year-old patient was presented with upper abdominal pain, fever, and nausea in the 24th week of gestational age, which was later affirmed as a pancreatic pseudocyst on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The MRI abdomen demonstrated a well-defined cystic mass measuring 9.5 x 6.0 cm with smooth margins, suggestive of a pancreatic pseudocyst. The patient underwent successful ultrasound (U/S)-guided pseudocyst drainage at 33rd weeks of gestation. Following close antenatal monitoring, she safely delivered a viable male infant at 36th weeks via an emergency cesarean section (C-section).
