Giant pancreatic pseudocysts are rare and usually occur as a complication of chronic pancreatitis. A pseudocyst greater than 10 cms in diameter is termed as a giant cyst. Here we present a case of giant pancreatic pseudocyst with a unique presentation along with review of literature. Take home message: Giant pancreatic pseudocyst is rare. The treatment and prognosis depend on size, duration and presentation. Early detection and treatment prevent complications and improves prognosis.

Background and Objectives: Salivary gland swellings are frequently encountered in OPD. Being situated in accessible location, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is awell‑established technique for evaluation of theselesions. A prospective study done in patients presenting with swelling of salivary glands, FNAC was performed with 23G needle, smears were stained with H&E. Clinical data, radiological findings were noted. Cytological features were evaluated and classified. Total 50 cases were evaluated. Distribution of cases into different categories was as follows ND (2%), NN (60%), AUS (2%), NB (20%), SUMP (2%), SM (2%)and M (12%). Non-neoplastic lesions were the most common cases observed in this study, whereas Pleomorphic adenoma and Mucoepidermoid carcinoma were the common benign and malignant lesions respectively.

Background:Ovary is a common site of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions. Ovarian cancer presents with non-specific symptoms and majority of these are in advanced stage. The histopathological patterns of these lesions is helpful in treatment. Hence, the present study was done to determine the prevalence and distribution of various types of lesions of ovary.
Materials and Methods: The present study was cross-sectional descriptive in nature conducted on a total of 100 samples of ovary brought to the department of pathology for histopathology. The specimens were prepared using normal histopathological procedures and findings were noted.
Results: Corpus luteal cyst was the most common non-neoplastic lesion seen (49.1%). Serous cystadenoma (41.9%) was frequent benign lesion seen while Serous adenocarcinoma (4.7%) was the most common malignant lesion. 82.5% of the lesions were benign, 12.3% were malignant and 5.3% were borderline in nature.
Conclusion: Luteal cyst was common in non-neoplastic lesions. Serous cystadenoma was commonest benign tumour, whereas serous cystadenocarcinoma was frequent in malignant ones.
