We report a case of solid type serous cystadenoma of the pancreas. Computed tomographic and magnetic resonance (MR) images showed a hypervascular solid tumor that was difficult to differentiate from endocrine tumor of the pancreas. However, the tumor showed marked hyperintensity similar to that of hepatic cyst on MR cholangiopancreatography, indicating not a solid but rather a cystic nature. MR cholangiopancreatography (heavily T2-weighted image) is quite useful for clearly differentiating solid from cystic tumors.
