A 20-year-old female presented with abdominal pain and loss of weight of 3 months duration, initially diagnosed as acid peptic disorder ultra sound examination revealed pancreatic mass and contrast-enhanced computed tomography abdomen confirmed distal pancreatic mass, which was excised and sent for histopathological examination, which revealed solid pseudopapillay tumor of pancreas. Solid pseudopapillary tumors most commonly occur in young women. Till recently the tumors are misclassified as nonfunctioning islet cell tumors or solid cystic tumor of pancreas or papillary cystadeno carcionoma. The tumors are well-encapsulated and cut surfaces show solid and hemorrhagic necrotic patterns. The neoplasms usually behave like a very low grade malignancy; hence complete surgical removal is treatment of choice.
