PAZ SOLDAN MESTA, Carolina et al. Pancreaticoduodenectomy for a solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas in children. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.1, pp.71-76. ISSN 1022-5129.

The solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPT) is a rare neoplasm with low malignant potential in children. We report the case of a 9 years old child with a SPT localized in the pancreatic head. She underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) with favorable evolution. The PD in high-volume centers is safe in both adults and children.

Keywords : Pancreatic neoplasms; Carcinoma, papillary; Pancreaticoduodenectomy; children.
