We present an unusual case of a pediatric pancreatic pseudocyst. Due to its rare incidence in the pediatric population, there is little literature about the effectiveness of potential treatment options. The patient was treated with laparoscopic transgastric cystgastrostomy with good results. This technique appears to be a safe and viable option for the pediatric patient population. Pancreatic pseudocysts are rare entities in the pediatric population and, as such, can lead to questions about appropriate management. We present a case report and discuss management options.
