 A case of neurinoma in the head of the pancreas is reported.

 A 52-year-old man was admitted to our department because of epigastric pain and an abdominal tumor.Laboratory data showed nothing in particular.X-ray of duodenum and ERCP revealed compression of the duodenum, bile duct, and pancreatic duct by the tumor.Ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging showed a multilocular cystic tumor due to necrosis of the tumor.On angiograms, the tumor was hypovascular.With suspicion of solid and cystic tumor of the pancreas, pancreatoduodenectomy was performed.

 The tumor was 14×12×8 cm in size and the section showed marked hemorrhage and necrosis.Histologically, the diagnosis of neurinoma was demonstrated.

 Neurinoma of the pancreas is very rare and was reviewed in Japanese medical literature.
