Abstract

Solid cystic pseudopapillary tumor (SCPT) of the pancreas is rare and is difficult to diagnose pre-operatively. We describe four children with abdominal pain and abdominal mass who were diagnosed with SCPT. Three underwent resection of the mass, one an open liver biopsy. Histopathology showed solid epithelioid cells, cystic areas, and pseudopapillary structures. SCPT is a low-grade malignant tumor with good prognosis and should be suspected in any child with an abdominal mass and abdominal pain.
