Cystic Echinococcosis caused by adult or larval stages of Echinococcus granulosus. Primary pancreatic involvement (without liver or lung disease) is found in less than 1% of the various sites of hydatid disease. Endoscopic ultrasound provides more detailed morphological information as well as the opportunity for biochemical and cytological sampling which helps in differentiating hydatid cysts from other cystic pancreatic lesions.
