Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death in Western countries. Primary squamous cell carcinoma is a rare form of pancreatic cancer with an incidence rate of 0.2%–4%. We present 72-year-old woman with painless jaundice. The pancreatic primary SCC confirmed by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration. Imaging methods demonstrated a hypodense mass at the head of the pancreas. Additionally 26 months after curative surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy, this patient was alive without evidence of disease.
