Abstract

Congenital pancreatic cysts are very rare in childhood. Its cause is unknown. Generally, they are asymptomatic and represent a casual radiological finding. They are usually located int the tail or in the neck of the pancreas. Most often, they are isolated lesions. They have been associated with other diseases, such as De Jeune syndrome, Beckwith-Wiedeman syndrome or von Hippel-Lindau disease. His classic treatment has been surgery. However, given the benign nature of these lesions in childhood, as well as the complexity of surgical treatment, a conservative management of them is advised.
