Intrapancreatic hypervascular lesions may represent metastases, neuroendocrine tumors, or intrapancreatic accessory spleens. The benign intrapancreatic accessory spleen can be difficult to separate from a malignant neuroendocrine tumor or metastasis. We report three cases of pancreatic lesions that underwent pancreatic surgery due to suspicion of malignancy on imaging; all cases were histologically intrapancreatic accessory spleens. Our cases point to the importance of performing single-photon emission computed tomography with heat-damaged Tc-99m-pertechnetate labelled erythrocytes to identify splenic tissue, even though small lesions can show a false-negative result.
