A 17-year-old male presented with weight loss. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen was suggestive of pancreatic head mass lesion with dilated pancreatic duct and common bile duct. He underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with stenting outside for jaundice. A positron emission tomography CT was done which showed pancreatic lesion with abdominal lymph nodes. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) from pancreatic lesion and lymph node revealed anaplastic lymphoma. Thus, EUS-guided FNA provided correct diagnosis and prevented surgery. The patient received chemotherapy and improved.
