    Abstract Background: Pancreatic trauma in children is relatively uncommon, but carries high morbidity and mortality rates when diagnosis is delayed. Preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic lesion might be difficult, especially in the case of isolated injury. Methodology: We analyze two cases of pancreatic trauma in childhood in our institute. Both cases were managed conservatively and discharged from the hospital without any complications. Results: In one case child had development of pseudocyst after about two weeks of trauma which was managed conservatively with percutaneous drainage. In another case, child was managed conservatively without any intervention. Conclusion: We emphasize the importance of CT (Computerized tomography) scan and judiciously use non operative management in the treatment of pancreatic trauma. .. View More»
