    Intrapancreatic accessory spleen (IPAS) is a congenital abnormality, which mimics neoplasm. Distinguishing IPAS from pancreatic neoplasm/malignancy is extremely important from a treatment perspective. We report the case of a 67-year-old asymptomatic man who had a 1.3-cm, incidentally detected,...
