Simultaneous occurrence of pancreatic and hepatic mucinous cystic neoplasms is very rarely reported in the literature. We present a case with extensive fatty component of the pancreatic tumour arising from the head of the pancreas and attaining a huge size before being treated by Whipple's pancreatoduodenectomy and subsequently by a right hepatectomy for the hepatic tumour.
