Clinical history
A 27-year-old female was diagnosed with a mass in the pancreatic body that was detected incidentally by abdominal ultrasonography during a general examination. The mass is 4.2 cm in maximum dimension. The tumor was well-defined and hypoechoic on EUS imaging. EUS-FNA was performed via a transgastric approach without complications.
