Abstract

Introduction: Solid Pseudopapillary Neoplasm of the pancreas is a malignant tumor and very rare in males.

Case presentation: In this case report we present a 23-year-old male patient, with nonspecific abdominal complaint due to a lesion with calcification in the body of the pancreas. The staging ruled out the possibility of distant illness. Surgical resection of the lesion was performed via laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy.

Conclusion: Unusual neoplasm, quite rare in males. Surgical resection enables cure and good prognosis, promoting long and disease-free survival.
