Cystic pancreatic tumors are rare in children and the immature cystic teratoma of the pancreas is even rarer. A review of the world literature shows 18 documented cases involving all the age groups. The preoperative evaluation of this lesion is rather questionable, with definitive diagnosis taking place intraoperatively. We report the 19 th case, in a 5-month-old male child. The clinical presentation and preoperative diagnosis of this anomaly are discussed.
