Abstract

ABSTRACT: Acute pancreatitis is an emerging problem in pediatrics, with an incidence that is rising in the last 2 decades. Data regarding the optimal management and physician practice patterns are lacking. We present a literature review and updates on the management of pediatric pancreatitis. Prospective multicenter studies defining optimal management of pediatric pancreatitis are needed to guide care and improve outcomes for this patient population.
