Context:Squamous cell carcinoma of the pancreas is extremely rare, and has a very poor prognosis. Only radical surgery, when possible, can provide prolonged survival.
Case:This report concerns a patient treated for a squamous adenocarcinoma of the distal pancreas with locoregional extension, revealed by an atypical symptomatology; the imaging revealed a mass of the distal pancreas with signs of locoregional extension. We performed a en bloc resection. The patient received adjuvant therapy with cisplatin and gemcitabine. Multiple metastases of the liver in a febrile context were discovered during the seventh postoperative month.
Conclusion: Surgical  resection  remains  the  more  affective  approach  to  deal  with  Squamous  cell carcinoma.
