Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm is a rare tumor of the pancreas. These tumors are considered to have low malignant potential with good prognosis. Due to its rarity, details about clinical presentation and management of the disease are not very clear. This study aims to share our experience and to describe management of the disease. We retrospectively evaluated patients 13 patients diagnosed with SPT on histopathological examination of resected specimen. Data on their clinicopathological, management-related factors, and follow-up was collected. All the patients were females, with a median age of 20 years. Abdominal pain was the most common presentation. The mean tumor size was 6.5 cm and majority of tumors were located in the head region. R0 resection was obtained in all the patients. All patients were disease-free with a median follow-up of 68 months. Excellent prognosis can be achieved with a margin-negative resection in these tumors. Adjacent organ or vascular involvement is not a contraindication for surgical resection.
