The review of the literature about the different imaging modalities in the diagnosis of cystic neoplasms of pancreas is presented together with recent considerations of the subject. A case of a 18 years old female patient with fairly uncommon solid-cystic pancreatic cystadenoma is reported with the findings of ultrasound (US), computerised tomography (CT), digital substractional DSA and US guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). US should be used as the primary imaging method in diagnosis of neoplasms of pancreas, followed by CT which has proven to be the most accurate imaging modality. Other studies have a secondary role. Presumptive diagnosis should be always confirmed by the fine-needle biopsy.
