The distal pancreatectomy specimen consisted of pancreatic parenchyma, 9 x 7 x 5 cm, and an attached 225-gram spleen, 14.8 x 6.5 x 6.0. At the tip of the distal pancreas was an ovoid tumor, 7.0 x 7.0 x 4.5 cm, surrounded by a thin white fibrous capsule and peripancreatic adipose tissue. The cut surfaces of the tumor nodule were fleshy, light brown, and focally hemorrhagic (Images 01 and 02). Although there was extensive hemorrhage, there were no gross areas of necrosis. The tumor did not infiltrate the pancreatic parenchyma. The spleen revealed a uniformly dark red cut surface with no involvement by tumor.
