Case Report

Pancreatoblastoma: A Case Report and Literature Review

C Tao, DX Tang, MJ Li


Pancreatoblastoma (PB) in children is extremely rare. Although pancreatoblastoma in children has been well reported in some literature, very few cases have been reported in China. In this paper, we report a case of pancreatoblastoma. This patient was a 4-year-old girl who complained of abdominal pain for a week. Imaging studies showed an about 5 cm in diameter mass located at the head of pancreas. Whipple's procedure was performed but this girl died 4 months later because the tumour was found again. Here, we describe the diagnosis, clinical and histological characteristics of the tumour, and the management.
