Title variants

Languages of publication



Pancreatic pseudocyst is a complication of pancreatic trauma. We describe improved nonoperative treatment of patient with posttraumatic pancreatic pseudocyst with somatostatin analogue. A 9-year-old girl was admitted to our hospital after blunt abdominal trauma with handlebar. Three weeks after abdominal trauma, pancreatic pseudocyst developed. Nonoperative treatment of posttraumatic pancreatic pseudocyst (the largest dimensions 70 × 55 × 65 mm) with somatostatin analogue, octreotide acetate, was applied for the next 52 days. The patient was followed up for 24 months after the discontinuation of octreotide and there were no recurrence of pancreatic pseudocyst. Somatostatin analogue could be usefull in the nonoperative treatment of posttraumatic pancreatic pseudocysts in children.
