It has been appreciated for a long time that surgery is the treatment of choice for symptomatic, and especially infected, pancreatic pseudocysts. This paradigm is now being challenged by endoscopic cystoenterostomy and cystogastrostomy, which have both been employed with success in selected patients. We present three cases in which infected pancreatic pseudocysts resolved following endoscopic cystogastrostomy guided by endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS).
