Abstract

Pediatric acute pancreatitis has distinct etiologic, clinical and prognostic characteristics in contrast to the adult form of the disease. This review offers a comprehensive imaging update that emphasizes the importance of recognizing specific findings that are relevant from the clinical standpoint. Knowledge of these features facilitates communication among multidisciplinary team members and ultimately could lead to the improved care of pediatric acute pancreatitis patients.
