Abstract

Carcinoma of the pancreas is rare in the pediatric population, with only 58 cases described in subjects under 16 years of age (1-3). The clinical presentation generally consists of abdominal pain and mass. We present a case of carcinoma of the pancreas in an 11-year-old girl, with abdominal pain and unusual behavior.
