      Abstract

      An uncommon case of a patient with a pseudocyst of the pancreas clinically mimicking a renal mass is demonstrated by CT including the extent of dissection. Once the cyst in the pancreas was known, other radiographic methods helped to confirm the diagnosis. A review of the literature concerning pseudocyst extension to the kidney is also presented.
