Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of pancreas in pregnancy treated with tumor enucleation: Case report and review of the literature
Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of pancreas (SPN) during pregnancy is rare and presents a threat both to the mother and the fetus. We report a case of SPN in a 26‑year‑old woman diagnosed at 21 weeks of gestation. Tumor enucleation was successfully performed by a general surgeon. A healthy female infant was delivered at 39 weeks and 5 days of gestation vaginally without complications. Our report provides an example that tumor enucleation of SPN during the second trimester could be successfully performed during pregnancy. A multidisciplinary approach with respect to the pregnant patient’s diagnosis, indications, and timing of surgery is necessary in ensuring the best possible outcomes for both the mother and the child.
