Pancreatic lymphangiomas are rare, but benign neoplasms. Historically, the diagnoses in various case reports were mostly made after surgical resection. There are emerging data concerning the utility of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) to differentiate it from more sinister pancreatic cystic neoplasms. A confident preoperative diagnosis with EUS-FNA is crucial to avoid unnecessary workup or surgery, especially for small and asymptomatic lesions. Here, we present a rare case of asymptomatic pancreatic lymphangioma which was diagnosed with EUS-FNA. The case highlights that a preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic lymphangioma can be made with certainty.
