Primitive cystic malformations of pancreas are rarest congenital lesions, representing less than 1% of all cystic pancreatic pathologies, associated with retinal lesions, cerebral hemangioblastomas constituting Von Hippel Lindau syndrome. Three patients afflicted with congenital pancreatic cyst were observed. The method used was screening with US and TC, superior polar nephrectomy more a nephrectomy for renal carcinoma associated. All the patients are living after opportune operations and screening. Mortality depends on evolution of complications. In conclusion, cystic pancreatic malformation is a hereditary illness which always needs to an accurate and continuous study to avoid neoplastic degeneration of kidney and other neoplasms which this illness leads.
