Ganglioneuroma (GN) is the uncommon, benign representative of the peripheral neuroblastic tumours (PNTs), which arise from primitive sympathetic ganglion cells. PNTs comprise one of the most common groups of neoplastic diseases in infants and children, but its occurrence in the pancreas is rare. We report a 4-year-old girl with GN of the pancreas requiring pancreaticoduodenectomy as a definitive therapy and with a great outcome, and we review the published literature.
