Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report two cases of massive lower gastrointestinal (LGI) bleeding occurring in young adult men, as the first manifestation of pseudocyst of the pancreas. Despite the rarity of such a complication, pancreatic pseudocyst should be kept in mind as a possible source of massive LGI bleeding requiring immediate surgical treatment.
