VENTURELLI M, Francisco et al. Solid-pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas: presentation of 3 clinical cases. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.1, pp. 72-76. ISSN 1022-5129.
The solid-pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas (TSPP) are a uncommon neoplasm (12% of exocrine tumors). Are more frequent in young women and presents a low malignant potential (15% develop metastases). Its preoperative diagnosis is very difficult, because these tumors haven`t radiological features that makes distinguish from the other pancreatic cysts tumors. Usually are a histopathological finding. Surgical therapy provides good survival, even in the presence of metastases. We present 3 cases with clinical, imaging, treatment and histopathology to provide more information about this rare disease.
