Spontaneous communication between a pancreatic pseudocyst and the colon: Unusual clinical and radiographic presentation

Abstract

A huge pancreatic pseudocyst which nearly filled the entire abdomen ruptured into the sigmoid colon, and caused perplexing clinical and radiographic findings. Because of the thickness of its wall, the pseudocyst did not collapse but became filled with intestinal gas. The more common features of pseudocysts that rupture are discussed.
