Pancreatic tuberculosis is a rare clinical entity. Because of the diverse clinical and radiological pictures of pancreatic tuberculosis, the accurate diagnosis of this chronic infection and the differentiation from other pancreatic diseases such as malignancy is challenging at clinical practice. We here report a case of pancreatic tuberculosis mimicking pancreatic cyst lesions. Pancreatic tuberculosis should be considered as one of differential diagnosis if pancreatic solid or cystic lesions exist in tuberculosis endemic areas, especially in case with the fluctuating changes of pancreatic lesions on serial imaging studies.
