|Solid Pseudopapillary Neoplasm (SPN) is a rare tumour with excellent prognosis seen predominantly in females. Patients usually remain asymptomatic or have vague symptoms like abdominal discomfort, pain, vomiting arising due to compression effect. Only a few cases with aggressive nature have been reported. Here we report a case of 25-years-old female who presented with abdominal mass of 15x15 cm arising from the pancreas. Following surgical resection, microscopic examination of mass revealed tumour composed of atypical cells arranged in sheets and pseudopapillae, showing high mitosis, necrotic foci, capsular and vascular invasion which is unusual form of presentation. Informed consent of patient was taken prior to procedure.|
