Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms of the pancreas are uncommon and usually occur in young women. They are generally large, encapsulated masses with mixture of solid, cystic, and hemorrhagic components. Some cases have atypical features; for example, they can form a small predominantly solid mass and produce dilatation of the main pancreatic duct. In this article we discuss and illustrate the spectrum of the appearances of this distinctive neoplasm on multidetector CT.
