This video presents the case of a 29-year-old female patient presenting with abdominal pain at the epigastrium. CT-scan and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a septated cystic lesion at the tail of the pancreas. This lesion is about 5cm in diameter. It is incarcerated in the hilum of the spleen. Echo-endoscopy confirmed the cystic nature of the lesion and fine-needle aspiration showed mucinous fluid with a clearly pathological CEA evocative of a mucinous cystic lesion. A laparoscopic distal splenopancreatectomy is demonstrated.
