INTRODUCTION

Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory condition of the pancreas which can lead to morbidity. Formation of pancreatic pseudocyst is one of the well-known complication. While small pseudocyts are asymptomatic, large ones can become symptomatic and cause several complications including infection, rupture, bleeding, biliary complications and portal hypertension1,2.

Various interventions are available for the management of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided cystogastrostomy is a choice for treatment of large pseudocyts, witch bulge into gastric lumen2,3. In this paper we present a case of large sized who was managed with argon plasma coagulation probe and without endoscopic ultrasonography.
