A solid pseudopapillary tumor is a rare pancreatic tumor with a low malignant potential that occurs commonly in young females. We report a case of 12-year-old girl with a solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas associated with symptoms of anemia. She was suspected to have a 7×4.5 cm mass growing from the head of the pancreas based on an esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a radiological imaging study, and an immunohistochemical stain examination. She was finally diagnosed with a solid pseudopapillary tumor after a pancreaticoduodenectomy as the definitive treatment.
Key Words: Solid pseudopapillary tumor, Duodenal bleeding, Anemia, Submucosal tumor
