This article is from JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, volume 18.AbstractBackground and Objectives:: Solid pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas are rare and occur most frequently in young women. They have an uncertain pathogenesis and unclear clinical behavior. Our aim was to evaluate the clinical presentation of solid pseudopapillary tumors and assess the efficacy of treatment with minimally invasive surgery. Methods:: From March 1997 to February 2011, 13 of 273 patients who underwent laparoscopic procedures on the pancreas were found to have solid pseudopapillary tumors. There were 12 female patients and 1 male patient. The median age was 21 years range, 15–77 years. Abdominal pain was the most common presenting symptom n = 9. Tumors were incidentally found in 3 patients on computed tomography scans obtained for other reasons. Results:: Enucleation of the tumor was performed in 4 patients, including 3 in whom the tumor was located in the head of the pancreas. Eight patients underwent distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy, whereas spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy was performed in one case. The median tumor size was 6 cm range, 1.5–11 cm, the median operative time was 197 minutes range, 68–320 minutes, and the median blood loss was 50 mL range,
