Abstract
Agenesis of the dorsal pancreas (ADP) is an extremely rare congenital anomaly. Human pancreas is formed by ventral and dorsal endodermal buds of the foregut endoderm. The dorsal bud forms the upper part of the head, neck, body, and tail of the pancreas and the ventral bud generates most of the head and uncinate process. ADP is derived from the embryologic failure of the dorsal pancreatic bud to form the pancreatic body and tail. ADP can be related to some diseases and conditions such as pancreatitis, hypoglycemia, and rarely pancreatic tumors. The association between cystic lesions with ADP has previously been reported. Three cases of cystic lesions of the pancreas with ADP were diagnosed clinically based on the imaging features and without any past history of pancreatitis. However, the pathologic diagnosis of resected lesions confirmed pseudocysts without pathologic evidence of tumor. We report 3 cases of pancreatic pseudocysts associated with ADP.
