  A 26-year-old primigravid patient, at 11 weeks of gestation, was referred to the digestive surgery department for acute pancreatitis, the abdominal ultrasound revealed a solid pancreatic mass. The MRI showed a well circumscribed tumor in the body of the pancreas with no local or distant invasion. The diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPTP) was then suspected. After multi-disciplinary reunion including the patient and her husband, the decision was to operate the patient but first medically interrupt the pregnancy. The operation consisted in left pancreatectomy with conservation of the spleen gland. The histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of SPTP. There was no complication or recurrence after 10 months of follow up.
