Solitary true pancreatic cyst is a rare entity, and only a few cases are reported in the literature. We report a case of a 35-year-old woman who had a cyst in the head of the pancreas and gall stones and presented with complaints of pain in the epigastric region. The patient underwent open cholecystectomy with aspiration of the pancreatic cyst at some other private hospital. After 4 months, she presented to us with no relief in pain. Repeat contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen showed recurrence of the cyst. The patient underwent enucleation of the cyst at our hospital. During a 2-year follow-up after the enucleation, she remained asymptomatic.
