Abstract

The commonest complication of traumatic pancreatitis is the development of pancreatic pseudocyst. We report a patient with traumatic pancreatitis following blunt abdominal trauma who developed an intrathoracic pancreatic pseudocyst late in the course of non-operative management, and discuss the management of this very rare complication of traumatic pancreatitis.
