A 71-year-old woman underwent operation for massive duodenal bleeding. At laparotomy a large multicystic tumor arising from the pancreas was found. The bleeding was controlled by suturing of the duodenal mucosa and release of the stretched duodenum from the tumor. Histologic and ultrastructural examination confirmed the diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma of the pancreas. We discuss the clinical and pathologic aspects of this rare tumor.
