Pancreatic pseudopapillary tumour

A rare misdiagnosed entity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Solid pseudo papillary pancreatic tumour is a rare entity. The atypical presentation causes a delayed or misdiagnosis of these pathology. It commonly affects the female population in the 2nd and 3rd decade of life. The presentation varies from non-specific abdominal pain to incidental findings in asymptomatic patients. It is a low-grade premalignant condition that is curable by excision of the tumour. PRESENTATION OF CASE This paper presents a 17-year-old girl with intra-abdominal mass diagnosed with solid pseudo papillary tumour that underwent Whipple's procedure. DISCUSSION We discuss the presentations, diagnosis and pathology findings of this rare pathology. CONCLUSION The diagnosis remains an enigma in view of the nature and location of the tumour. Resection is still the best choice remains for this condition.
