Figure 4 (A-C): Contrast-EUS in a patient with mass forming chronic pancreatitis shows a mass in the head of pancreas with cystic component (arrow, A) with peripheral enhancement (arrow, B) and central nonenhancing component. The central nonenhancing component is slightly echogenic than the rest of the mass (arrow, C). In long standing cases of mass forming chronic pancreatitis, this lack of enhancement mimics pancreatic adenocarcinoma
