A santorinicele is a rare anomaly defined as focal cystic dilation of the terminal portion of the dorsal pancreatic duct at the minor papilla. Importantly this anomaly has been suggested as a possible cause of relative stenosis of the minor papilla. This anomaly has been associated with pancreatic divisum and recurrent acute pancreatitis. Magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) are the main diagnostic modalities. Endoscopic minor papilla sphincterotomy has been shown to improve pain and quality of life in patients with this anomaly presenting with recurrent pancreatitis. We present a case of a single episode of pancreatitis who underwent EUS for evaluation of possible pancreatic mass leading to a diagnosis of santorinicele and complete pancreatic divisum. We attempt to describe this anomaly, diagnostic approach, and management options.
