Eur Radiol. 2002 Apr;12(4):770-3. doi: 10.1007/s003300101032. Epub 2001 Sep 6.


Fat-containing pancreatic tumors are very rare. In the literature, less than ten cases of lipoma originating from the pancreas have been reported. We present a case of pancreatic lipoma in a 65-year-old woman with findings of ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging in addition to a brief review of the literature.
