A 48-year-old female presented with abdominal pain due to a suspected kidney stone and underwent CT scan. The CT scan confirmed a kidney stone, but also revealed an incidental mass in the tail of the pancreas. Endoscopic ultrasound showed a 3.4 cm hypoechoic mass in the pancreatic tail with central calcification. A fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed.
