Abstract

Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas is a very rare form of childhood pancreatic tumor. We report the case of an 11-year-old girl having a solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas presenting with left upper abdominal pain. Imaging studies showed the lesion to be an ovoid solid mass arising from the body and the tail of the pancreas. The tumor was surgically resected and was histopathologically diagnosed as a solid pseudopapillary tumor.
