Blunt trauma is responsible for 80% of abdominal injuries in childhood. Pancreatic injury is quite rare and often overlooked or diagnosed too late. The most are frequently injured by being exposed to compression as a result of bicycle accidents. In the early period, a normal physical examination and normal values of pancreatic amylase, can lead patients to be bypassed.
In this article, two cases with the complaint of a fall from a bicycle and then diagnosed as pancreatic injury are reported and reviewed with the review of the literature.
