ABSTRACT
Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of pancreas is a rare exocrine tumour of pancreas. It has low malignant potential with excellent prognosis and usually effects females in adolescent age group. We report a case of 40 year old female who presented with pain abdomen. Radiological investigations revealed a mass lesion in the pancreas. The diagnosis was confirmed on histopathological examination. Due to its low incidence, the clinical and pathological features of this tumour have not been extensively studied. It is important to be aware of its specific microscopic features, immunohistochemistry and differential diagnosis as timely surgical resection provides long- term survival.
