|Giant cell tumors of the pancreas come in three varieties-osteoclastic, pleomorphic, and mixed histology. These tumors have distinctive endoscopic, clinical, and cytological features. Giant cell tumors have a controversial histogenesis, with some authors favoring an epithelial origin and others favoring a mesenchymal origin. The true origin of these lesions remains unclear at this time. These are also very rare tumors but proper identification and differentiation from more common pancreatic adenocarcinoma is important. The risk factors of these tumors and the prognosis may be different from those associated with standard pancreatic adenocarcinoma. In this case report, we will discuss a case of a 53 years old gentlemen who presented with a 6 month history of vague abdominal pain, imaging studies revealed a distal pancreatic mass infiltrating the spleen. Distal Pancreatectomy and Splenectomy was done and the patient was discharged home after having an uneventful postoperative period.|
