ACUNA L, RENATO; SOTO L, PATRICIO; MUNOZ R, VANESSA  y  ACUNA R, JAVIERA. Pancreas pseudo-papillary tumor, a case-report. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2008, vol.79, n.4, pp.404-408. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062008000400009.

Pancreatic tumors are extremely rare, specially in children, where the páncreas pseudo-papillary tumor corresponds to 1% of primary pancreatic tumors, characterized by its low malignant potential. We report the case of a solid páncreas pseudo-papillary tumor in a 5 year-old female patient, presenting with prolonged abdominal pain. An abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography were performed, showing 2 tumors at the páncreas head and tail, with normal tumor markers (alpha-fetoprotein, carcinoembryonic antigen, P-HCG). The surgical treatment consisted on distal pancreatectomy with tumor enucleation at the páncreas head and tail, afterwards presenting acute pancreatitis that was medically treated. The biopsy confirmed páncreas solid pseudo-papillary tumor. In the 22 months follow-up period, the patient has remained disease-free

Palabras clave : pediatric pancreas tumor; pancreas solid pseudo-papillary tumor; distal pancreatectomy; conservative surgery.
