A case of solid papillary epithelial neoplasm (PSEN) of pancreas in a young woman is reported in which the nature of tumour was recognised pre-operatively by ultrasound guided Fine needle aspiration. The pre-operative cytologic diagnosis enabled prompt and appropriate surgical treatment. FNAC revealed large cell clumps in the aspirate showing branching papillary appearance in which multiple layers of tumour cells surrounded central vascular stalks. The above was confirmed on histopathological examination of the excised tumour tissue.
