Pancreatic pseudocyst is a complication following resolution of pancreatitis. The optimum treatment for this condition has been under much debate. Laparoscopic surgery has changed the outlook of surgical management for the condition by reducing the operation related morbidity. The procedure has not been reported in local literature and is relatively new for the medical-surgical community. We report a case of pseudocyst gastrostomy and explain the procedure through laparoscopic approach.
