Gamna gandy bodies are sclerosiderotic granules composed of various amounts of calcium and hemosiderin in hyalinised fibrous tissue. We report a case of an 18 year old girl with solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas in which numerous gamna gandy bodies were present. The pathogenesis of such a finding is unclear. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Gamna Gandy bodies occurring in a solid pesudopapillary tumor of the pancreas.
