Pancreatic pseudocysts (PPs) are defined as fluid collections more than 4 weeks old that are surrounded by a nonepithelial wall of fibrous or granulation tissue. Many risk factors have been associated with pseudocyst development but predictive factors remain to be explored. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical, and biochemical parameters that may predict the development of a PPs after an attack of acute pancreatitis (AP).
