Solid pseudopapillary tumors (SPTs) are classified among the rare malignant tumors but they usually appear as slowly growing and low-grade malignancy and also occur in children and adolescents. They are mostly detected incidentally, but may occasionally present with sudden pain or symptoms of compression of adjacent structures. We report the case of a 15-year-old girl having an SPT of the exocrine pancreas presenting with an upper abdominal mass following a slight trauma at the dancing school. Imaging investigation showed a fairly heterogeneous density consistent with an SPT arising from the body and the tail of the pancreas, adherent to the splenic vein. The patient underwent complete enucleation. The aim of this paper is to report and discuss this recent experience and also review the literature focusing some questions still debated on this intriguing topic.
