Scalloping of visceral organs like liver and spleen can cause certain peritoneal diseases. It has usually been described with pseudomyxoma peritonei and peritoneal carcinomatosis. Occasionally, it has also been described with certain benign conditions like peritoneal tuberculosis. We describe visceral scalloping in setting of pancreatic diseases. We believe that pancreatic fluid collections exert significant pressure on the visceral organs to result in scalloping of the visceral surfaces.
