Abstract [en]

Solid pseudopapillary pancreatic tumor (SPPT) is a rare tumor that constitutes 1–2% of all pancreatic tumors and most of the patients are young females. SPPT has low malignancy potential and radical resection is associated with good results and a high survival rate, even in cases with large tumors: the 5-year survival rate is estimated as 95%. This paper describes an unusual presentation of an SPPT discovered after blunt trauma to the abdomen during a basketball game. Computed tomography revealed a large tumor in the pancreatic head and the patient was operated by pylorus-preseving pancreaticoduodenectomy. The histopathologic examination indicated an SPPT with R0-resection and after 4 years there were no signs of recurrence.
