SPN is a rare epithelial neoplasm of low grade malignant potential for local and metastatic spread, occurring predominantly in young females. Differential diagnosis of SPN includes a wide spectrum of cystic and solid entities in the pancreas including pancreatic neuroendocrine, serous or mucinous cystadenoma or carcinoma, intrapancreatic splenules etc. Contrast enhanced MRI plays a key role in characterization of SPN and its mimics , helps to reach a specific diagnosis and narrows the differential, which is complimentary to EUS and biopsy when findings are equivocal to reach an accurate diagnosis which is of utmost importance for management and treatment planning
