Almost all the pancreatic resections are amenable to be managed robotically, including the highly demanding central pancreatectomy. This single case describes our initial experience in performing a robotic central pancreatectomy. This technique was employed to resect a solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of the pancreatic neck diagnosed in 49-years-old women during routine staging for a synchronous breast cancer. A review of the literature about central pancreatectomy for the various facets of the procedure is also provided.
