Abstract


Pancreatic pseudocyst is a rare entity in children and 56% of those in children are secondary to abdominal blunt trauma. 90
% of Cysts <4cms resolve spontaneously but only 20% of cyst>6cm resolve spontaneously. Laparoscopic approach is an
alternative new technique to open cystogastrostomy for the minimally invasive management of PPCs in the paediatric population.
