Abstract

Solid and papillary epithelial neoplasm (SPEN) of the pancreas is an uncommon tumor and is found predominantly in young females. The most common clinical presentation is an abdominal mass. The tumor has a low grade malignant potential and complete removal is the treatment of choice. We report a case of SPEN in a 13-year-old girl who presented with abdominal pain and increasing size of an abdominal mass after abdominal trauma. CT and sonographic findings showed a well-demarcated mass in the pancreas tail with solid and cystic portion. She got a distal pancreatectomy and pathologic finding was SPEN of pancreas.
