A true cyst of the pancreas, distinguished from the much more common pancreatic pseudocyst by possessing a lining of mucous epithelium. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of pancreatic ducts secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
