ABSTRACT
Despite of a number of techniques in the armentarium of the paediatric surgeon, the management of pancreatic pseudocysts remains a challenge. We report on a case of a 5-year-old child with a post-traumatic pancreatic pseudocyst who was successfully treated with endoscopic ultrasound-guided transgastric approach. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided transgastric drainage of a pancreatic pseudocyst is effective and safe in children.
