Chronic pancreatitis represents the end result of a continuous, prolonged, inflammatory, and fibrosing process that affects the pancreas. Pseudocyst is common sequelae of acute pancreatitis or chronic pancreatitis. Abdominal ultrasonography is difficult to detect pancreatic disease, especially located in pancreatic tail. A 56 years old man visited with upper abdomenal pain. We could visualize pseudocyst through abdominal transplenic scan in right oblique position. We confirmed his diagnosis was chronic pancreatitis and pseudocyst after Computer tomography. Abdominal transplenic scan is useful for pancreatic tail disease.
