Özet

INTRODUCTION: Pseudopapillary tumors (PPT) of the pancreas are very rare, comprising 0.3-2.7% of all pancreatic tumors, and they occur mostly in young women. Generally, they are benign, but in rare cases they can enlarge, invade adjacent organs, and metastasize distantly. Radiological assessments and biochemical markers are important for diagnosing tumor characteristics. The main treatment is tumor resection.
