Extrapancreatic solid pseudopapillary neoplasms (SPNs) are rare tumors, which bear morphological, immunohistochemical, and molecular features similar to those of pancreatic counterparts. SPN occurs primarily in adolescent girls and young women. It is considered to be a malignant neoplasm with low-grade biology. Ovarian SPNs are uncommon, have benign morphology, usually limited to the ovary and local surgical excision is curative. We report an unusual case of SPN of right ovary with extraovarian spread and metastases to lymph nodes. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second documented case of extragonadal spread of ovarian SPN.
