Pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) are being identified increasingly because of recent advancements in abdominal imaging technologies, presenting a number of challenges in clinical practice. Although most PCLs are benign, some carry a significant risk of malignant degeneration. Accurate diagnosis of PCLs is important for proper management and follow-up. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is useful for the characterization of PCLs with high sensitivity and accuracy. Additional information can be obtained
