Low-grade myofibroblastic sarcoma (LGMS) is a malignant tumor with myofibroblastic differentiation, which frequently occurs in the oral cavity and extremities. Here, we report a case of LGMS of the pancreas in a 44-year-old female presented to our hospital with recurrent upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography revealed a low-density solid tumor at the body of the pancreas. Distal pancreatectomy combined with splenectomy was performed. LGMS of the pancreas was diagnosed by the histological features together with immunohistochemical findings. The patient received adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery and remained asymptomatic for 5 years. Previous studies and our experience suggested that surgical excision with wide margins is the reasonable treatment of LGMS and adjuvant therapy may improve its prognosis.
