Keywords: Acute pancreatitis, children, perindopril


Acute pancreatitis is a reversible inflammatory condition of the pancreas. It usually develops on the basis of trauma, structural abnormalities, and chronic systemic diseases. A definitive causal correlation between a drug and acute pancreatitis is quite difficult for clinicians. Drugs play a vital role in the etiology in approximately 10% of children with pancreatitis. More than 50 drugs including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors have been reported to cause pancreatic damage. There was no pediatric case report developed pancreatitis following perindopril use. A pediatric case of pancreatitis following perindopril intake was presented in this article to emphasize pancreatitis, which is one of the complications that may occur after drug intake.
