Abstract

Pancreatitis consists in acute inflammation of the pancreas that is clinically characterized by abdominal pain. To make the diagnosis it is necessary the elevation of biochemical markers like pancreatic amylase or lipase. It is the most frequent pancreatic disease in both children and adults. Its presentation in the pediatric population is increasing and has several etiologies such as: Infections, trauma, intoxication and metabolic diseases. Trauma mechanisms have been described: Child maltreatment, falls, trauma with the bicycle handle and traffic accidents.
