Rapid advancements, access to and use of imaging techniques have increased the frequency of identification of pancreatic cystic neoplasms in clinical practice. However, a diagnostic dilemma among pancreatic cystic neoplasms remains. Solid variant serous cystadenoma is extremely rare and difficult to accurately diagnose preoperatively, as they are commonly mistaken for malignant solid tumors of other types. Here, we present a case of a solid variant serous cystadenoma preoperatively misdiagnosed as a neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas with a review of the relevant literature.
