Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPPP) is a very rare pancreatic tumor with low malignancy potential, occurring mostly in adolescent females and often not considered in the differential diagnosis of pancreas tumors in children. Patients with SPPP usually present with non specific abdominal symptoms and normal clinical laboratory tests. Between 2005 and 2007, 3 cases of SPPP were evaluated in our institution. The purpose of this communication is to describe the typical imaging findings of the SPPP tumor at US, CT and MRI and to correlate the images with the macro- and microscopic features of the lesion.
