Tackling the Diagnosis: Solid Pseudopapillary Tumor of the Pancreas in a Young Man

Marilia Campos, James Campbell, Hernando Gonzalez, Mufaddal Najmuddin


Solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) of the pancreas is an extremely rare pancreatic tumor. It usually goes undetectable for a prolonged period of time given its lack of clinical symptoms. But when detected, it has a malignancy potential of 15%. Here we present a case of SPT diagnosed incidentally in a 17-year-old man during a routine evaluation for an abdominal trauma.
