Mentions: Laparotomy was done through a left subcostal incision with upper midline extension. Exploration revealed a 7 cm cyst in the body of the pancreas separable from the surrounding structures (Fig. 2). Isolation of the cyst with towels impregnated with hypertonic saline (20%) was done. After aspiration of the fluid content and injection with hypertonic saline (20%), endocystectomy and deroofing (Fig. 3). A drain was left in the resultant cavity.
