Neuroblastoma is the second most common malignant solid tumor in children, and often metastasizes to liver, most notably in patients with stage 4S tumors. Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPT) is a pancreatic borderline tumor with low malignant potential. Coexistence of these two tumors in one patient has never been reported before. Hereby, we present a case of an 8-month-old infant with coexisting tumors of SPT and metastatic neuroblastoma of liver. Dysdifferentiation of neural crest might be responsible for histogenesis of the coexisting tumors.
