Solid pseudo-papillary tumors (SPTs) of the pancreas are rare and typically present in young female patients. These are slowly growing masses that may attain large size, and are of low malignant potential. Surgical resection is curative in most of the cases. We presented the case of a young female referred to us with a large palpable epigastric mass. Preoperative diagnosis revealed a large SPT of the head of the pancreas. Surgical intervention, clinicopathological features, immunohistochemical findings and follow up are analyzed. (EN)
