Sarcomas, malignant tumors arousing from connective tissues, are rarely found within the pancreas, which is a mesenchymal supporting structure. This report describes a 77 year old male with a several month history of refractory epigastric pain. A low-attenuation lesion at the pancreatic head was identified on abdominal computed tomography. The Whipple procedure (pancreaticoduodenectomy) with pancreaticogastrostomy reconstruction was performed. Histology revealed high-grade sarcoma and lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis. Although the operative course of treatment was smooth, the patient died of cerebrovascular accident postoperatively.
