Solid-Pseudopapillary Tumor of the Pancreas are rare tumors usually affecting young women. Our aim was to report two cases of Solid-Pseudopapillary Tumor of the Pancreas and to review the literature on the subject. The first case was a 23-year-old young woman with a high economic status who had consulted for abdominal pain. The diagnosis of a Solid-Pseudopapillary Tumor of the Pancreas was suspected due to the radiological characteristics of the tumor (ultrasound and abdominal Computed tomography) and confirmed by the histology of the surgical specimen. She went through cephalic pancreaticoduodenectomy surgical operation. The evolution was satisfactory with one year of abdominal Computed tomography follow-up showing no recurrence. The second case was a 34-year-old young woman with a low economic level who had consulted for recurrent epigastric pain. The diagnosis of a Solid-Pseudo papillary Tumor of the Pancreas was retained on the basis of clinical and scannographic criteria. A surgical intervention was proposed but refused by the patient. A surveillance of Computed tomography was proposed afterwards. Solid-Pseudopapillary Tumor of the Pancreas are rare pathologies. Complete surgical resection provides a good prognosis.
