ABSTRACT: Over a period of 15 years, we have treated 22 patients of pseudocyst of the pancreas. Two of our patients developed pseudocyst after a prolonged treatment with Sodium Valproate, a known but rare complication of the drug. We also treated two patients of pancreatic duct calculi with pseudocyst, a rare association. Initially all the patients received conservative management. Two patients had USG guided aspirations. Different drainage procedures like cysto gastrostomy, cysto jejunostomy, pancreatico jejunostomy were performed. Two patients had mild wound infection. Two patients came with occasional abdominal pain. Follow up USG has not shown any abnormality in those patients. Two patients were lost to follow up.
