|Objective: To present one case of solid and papillary neoplasm
of the pancreas in young women with pathological and immunohistological
correlation and a review of the literature.
Patient and methods: One patient with solid and papillary
neoplasm of the pancreas was reviewed.The patient was a 37 year old female.
The review consisted of a macroscopic appearance, histologic and
immunohistochemical examination and imaging
Results: Distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy was succefully
done.The tumor was well encapsulated and the cut surface showed a characteristically
solid pattern on the tumor periphery and a centrally haemorrhagic and necrotic
pattern. Histochemical and immunohistochemcal examinations showed polymorphic
differentiation. Immunohistohemical stains showed diffrent expressions
of both epithelial and endocrine markers.
Conclusion: The tumor is caracterized by a non - invasive
growth pattern and metastasis is very rare. Recognition of this rare
neoplasm is important because treatment differs from that of other
