Pancreatic lymphoepithelial cysts (LECs) are extremely rare, and certain cytologic pitfalls may hinder a correct prospective diagnosis. The authors analyzed the clinical, radiologic, and cytologic features of 4 patients who underwent sampling of lymphoepithelial cysts (LECs) of the pancreas by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration and compared those features with the features from patients reported in the literature. The differential diagnosis and methods for distinguishing the various pancreatic cystic lesions are discussed.
