Pancreatitis in children is uncommon. Compared to adults. pancreatitis in children is usually related to trauma, anatomic anomalies, infections, hereditary, and systemic disease, but not gallstones or alcohol. Most cases do not require endoscopic intervention. We report an unusual case of recurrent pancreatitis in a child related to common bile duct stones requiring endoscopic treatments after surgical treatment for choledochal cyst.
