Anaplastic carcinomas of the pancreas are rare pancreatic tumors, frequently showing various morphologies that include pleomorphic epithelial cells and relatively mononuclear spindle cell. Because they have highly aggressive nature and worse prognosis, it is important to recognize this disease entity. 68- year-old woman admitted for the treatment of epigastric pain and weight loss. Initial CT scan showed that 9 x 5.5 cm sized pancreatic cystic mass in tail and about 1.5 cm sized two cysts in head and neck. Because additional imaging study such as MRI and endoscopic ultrasonography showed large cystic mass had a possibility of malignant mucinous cystadenocarcinoma, we planned to distal pancreatectomy. However, frozen biopsy of each pancreatic cystic wall showed malignant pleomorphic cells, therefore, she underwent total pancreatectomy for the treatment of anaplastic carcinoma. Herein we reported a case of multifocal cyst forming anaplastic carcinoma of the pancreas.
