Patient Data

Age: 75
Gender: Male

At the end of the pancreatic tail, there is a solid formation of about 13 mm, exophytic, with regular margins and the same characteristic enhancement of the spleen.

The formation described at pancreatic tail level in all sequences, particularly in DWI, shows the same spleen signal.
