Chronic fibrosing pancreatitis in childhood: report of a case and literature review

Chronic fibrosing pancreatitis in childhood: report of a case and literature review

Chronic fibrosing pancreatitis in childhood is an uncommon condition of unknown etiology with a variety of clinical presentations, histopathologic features, and outcomes. The diagnosis is one of exclusion (of hereditary or secondary pancreatitis), which should include histological assessment. The histological features of this condition have been described, to our knowledge, in nine published cases. We report a case in a 13-year-old male, who presented with obstructive jaundice and subsequently had evidence of endocrine and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, despite a surgical decompression of the pancreatic-biliary duct system.
