The cytological features of Papillary Solid - Cystic Epithelial Neoplasm of Pancreas (PSEN) in a 20-year-old female patient is described. The patient presented with pain abdomen and was found to have a well-defined mass localized to the region of tail of pancreas. Part of the mass was found to be adherent to the spleen. CT guided FNAC smears revealed cellular neoplasm with prominent papillary structures lined by uniform cells with bland nuclear features. Presence of a mucoid sleeve between the cells and the vascular cores of the papillae was a prominent cytologic feature. The cytological findings correlated well with the histological findings on the surgically operated specimen of distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy. The patient remained symptom-free following surgery.
