Mucin-producing rumours of the pancreas have been recently reported with increasing frequency and most cases have occurred in middle-aged and elderly people. In the present report, a case of a 21-year-old man with mucinous cystadenoma of the pancreas is reported. He had a long history of recurrent pancreatitis from the age of 8. When he was aged 10, the first branch of the main pancreatic duct was shown to be enlarged on endoscopic retrograde pancreaticography (ERP). A series of ERP studies and computed tomography scans performed over a period of 11 years demonstrated continuing growth of this enlargement of the pancreatic duct. Pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed and the patient has been well. without further episodes of acute pancreatitis and has been free of recurrent tumour for 1 year.
