 en Post-traumatic Pancreatic Pseudocyst in a Nigerian boy – Case Report and Review of Literature
Ajani, R.S.

Abstract

Pancreatic pseudocyst is a benign pathology of the pancreas. It is not common. Though it occurs mostly in adult, it does occur in the paediatric age group. It could be post traumatic (especially in children). Management strategies include medical therapy, percutaneous drainage, Laparoscopic drainage, Endoscopic drainage, Endoscopic ultrasound- guided drainage (EUS) and Surgical drainage procedures. A case of pancreatic pseudocyst secondary to a blunt abdominal trauma in a 13- year old Nigerian is reported. The literature on the clinical, diagnostic methods and management options is reviewed.
