Conclusion: To differentiate serous cystadenoma from other cystic lesions communicating with the pancreatic duct, careful radiological examination is necessary. Background: Communication between the cystic cavity and the pancreatic duct in an ordinary serous cystadenoma is uncommon, although it is not uncommon in other cystic lesions, such as pseudocyst, mucinous cystadenoma/adenocarcinoma, and intraductal papillary tumor. Methods: A serous cystadenoma of the pancreas communicating with main pancreatic duct in a 76-yr-old male is reported. Results: The communication was preoperatively demonstrated by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and confirmed by histopathological examination of the resected specimen.
