A 23-year-old woman presented with vague abdominal discomfort and mild pain. A CT scan revealed a well-demarcated heterogeneous mass in the tail of her pancreas. The resection specimen was comprised of an 18.0 x 16.0 x 12.0 cm, 1698 g, well-circumscribed mass in the pancreatic tail. The mass was multinodular with yellow-tan areas mixed with small, hemorrhagic, purple-tan foci. On cut surface, the mass was partially cystic. The cystic areas contain serosanguinous fluid and were surrounded by yellow necrotic-appearing tissue.
