Nowadays pancreatic cysts are common incidental findings due to advance and widespread use of imaging modalities. Many of these lesions are non-neoplastic, mostly pseudocysts. However, an important proportion are neoplastic: some can have an indolent course while others can be malignant or have malignant potential. Several guidelines have been developed and uploaded in order to provide a practical approach of pancreatic cystic lesions; there are similarities between them, but also some differences and controversies. The key to a successfully management is a careful combination of clinical, radiological and histopathological findings, always involving the patient in a shared decision.

We performed a bibliographic review and iconographic search in our hospital picture archiving system.
