The Teaching Point

Solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) is a rare low grade malignancy more frequent in young women. The typical imaging features include a well-circumscribed encapsulated lesion with peripheral and heterogeneous enhancement in pancreatic phase, due to its variable degree of hemorrhagic necrosis. However, small SPTs frequently present as purely solid lesions with sharp margins and gradual enhancement, weak during pancreatic phase and progressive during the hepatic venous phase.

Abstract
Solid Pseudopapillary Tumor of the pancreas is a rare nonfunctioning tumor. It is considered a low-grade malignancy that is apparently curable with surgical complete excision in most instances. We present a case of solid pseudopapillary pancreatic tumor that represented a challenge to the radiologists. This case highlights its possible various appearances and the need to the radiologist to be familiar with them.
