Cholesterol crystal embolization (CCE) can result in end-organ ischemia. Retrospective review of clinicopathologic data. The first patient was anticoagulated with coumadin for chronic atrial fibrillation and presented subacutely with a solid mass. The second patient suffered from coronary artery disease post-angioplasty/stenting and presented with acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cystification. CCE should be considered in patients with significant vascular disease, arrhythmias or vascular manipulation who present with a pancreatic mass.
