Microcystic adenomas of the pancreas are rare benign neoplasms that occur most frequently in elderly females. Characteristically, the tumors have a spongy gross appearance and are composed of innumerable cysts lined by flat, and cuboidal cells which are rich in glycogen. They commonly present with abdominal discomfort or pain. In this case report, we present a cystic neoplasm of pancreas in a 65-year-old lady who clinically presented with discomfort in the abdomen and hyperglycaemia. Proximal pancreatectomy was done. Histopathological examination of surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of "Microcystic Adenoma ofPancreas". Despite of the rarity, microcystic adenoma should kept in the mind as the differential diagnosis of cystic lesions of pancreas.
