Pancreatic cystic lesions are becoming a more frequent indication for surgical resection, especially for symptomatic lesions. This video presents two patients who were found to have abdominal cystic lesions suspected to be of pancreatic origin. The first patient was found to have a retroperitoneal lymphangioma entirely free of the pancreatic parenchyma which was successfully resected. The second patient was found to have a bronchogenic cyst intimately attached to the tail of the pancreas and required a distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy for en bloc removal.
