A Pseudocyst is a collection of pancreatic juice or fluid enclosed by a complete wall of fibrous tissue It occurs in interstitial pancreatitis and the absence of necrotic tissue is imperative for its diagnosis.

Psra is characterized by a protracted clinical course, a high incidence of local complications, and a high mortality rate. Eur J Radiol ;5: This is probably necrosis of pancreatifis peripancreatic tissues.
