Abstract

The solid pseudopapillary tumour (SPT) of the pancreas is an uncommon cystic pancreatic neoplasm mostly seen in young females. We present a large SPT in a 16-year-old female who presented with acute onset upper- and mid-quadrant abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting for 4 days. The lesion was demonstrated by abdominal ultrasound and by computed tomography, which was successfully removed surgically.
