Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas have an incidence of 10% of all cystic tumors, represented by serous cystadenomas, mucinous cystic neoplasm and solid pseudopapillary neoplasm. We present two cases with rare pancreatic tumors: two women of 18 years old and 67 years old respectively were admitted for non specific abdominal pain and dyspepsia. The CT-scans diagnosed with corporeal pancreatic of 30 × 40 mm in the first case and 98 × 66 mm in the second. Distal pancreatectomy with spleen preservation was performed in both cases with uneventful postoperative course. The pathological exam revealed pseudopapillary pancreatic tumor in the first case and mucinous cystic neoplasm, in the second case. A short review of the literature was also performed.
