Young lady was diagnosed with gall bladder stones and acute pancreatitis. Managed medically initially. Gradually got better and then again developed pain, swelling upper abdomen and vomiting. Reevaluated and found to have a large pseudocyst. Successful single stage laparoscopic gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy) and pseudocyst drainage (cystogastrostomy) followed by discharge 3 days after surgery with complete recovery.
CT scan and postoperative picture of abdomen in the picture. Laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is associated with quick recovery and excellent long-term outcomes for patients with pseudocyst pancreas.
