Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is a rare malignancy with a low malignant potential and strong female preponderance. Diagnosis during pregnancy is extraordinary, and management must consider the risks to the mother and foetus of tumour growth and rupture. A large 35-cm SPN was identified on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 24-year-old woman at 6 weeks of gestation following presentation with an abdominal mass. Surgery was delayed to allow the foetus to reach as close to term as possible because surveillance MRIs showed incremental mass growth. Emergency c-section was undertaken at 35 weeks of gestation due to persistent tachycardia and suspected haemorrhage into the tumour. A Hb of 70 g/l post-delivery despite four units of RBCs and an albumin of 11 g/l necessitated urgent multivisceral surgery. Surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment for SPN. However, the strategy of choice during pregnancy remains undetermined, with more recent reports delaying surgery until post-partum.
