The Teaching Point

The preoperative diagnosis of pancreatoblastoma in adults is very challenging because of its rarity, the similar radiologic findings to those seen in other pancreatic lesions, and its histopathologic heterogeneity. Nevertheless, it should be considered in tumors presenting solid and cystic components in order to reach an early detection and proper management.

Abstract
Most cases of pancreatoblastoma, a rare malignant epithelial tumor of the pancreas, are seen in the pediatric population. The rarity of pancreatoblastoma, the similar radiologic findings to those seen in other pancreatic lesions, and its histopathologic heterogeneity, make its preoperative diagnosis in adults a real challenge. We report ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging correlative findings of a histologically proven pancreatoblastoma in a 37-year-old woman. Pancreatoblastoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a pancreatic mass presenting uncommon imaging features.
