Abstract

The extremely rare extensive propagation of a giant retroperitoneal pancreatic pseudocyst into the posterior compartment of the lower limb as far as the knee is reported. The extension was found producing through the sciatic foramen and the full diagnosis was made by MDCT. A complete healing was progressively obtained in the 78-year old female after a six months period of sequential multidisciplinary therapeutic approach comprising combined medical and surgical intra-abdominal and external drainage.
