West China Hospital, Chengdu, China

This is a case of a 42-year-old woman who was initially admitted to our hospital, presenting with chronic upper abdominal pain without any other accompanying symptom. Tumor markers test indicated that AFP, CEA, CA19-9 and CA125 were normal, abdominal enhanced CT indicated a cystic mass near the spleen with a 4.7*4.3*3cm in dimension. All the work-up indicated a benign cystic lesion of the pancrease. A laparoscopic spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy with intraoperative vascular repair was undertaken using a five-port method.
