Abstract Background Solid pseudo-papillary tumor of the pancreas (SPTP) is a rare disease with a low malignant potential. Though it shows low malignant potential 10% to 15% of the cases show aggressive behavior with metastatic involvement of the liver. The symptoms include abdominal discomfort and abdominal pain. It is very rare in early years of age. This is the case of a 10 year old girl with abdominal pain and her evaluation revealed solid pseudo-papillary tumor of pancreas. In family history, her grandmother died because of pancreas cancer. The mass was excised and in her 6-month follow up she didn’t have any problems. This case is presented to point out physicians that more attention to pseudo- papillary tumor can bring us significant improvement in the diagnosis of this pathology, though pseudo- papillary tumor is a rare pathologic condition in children.
