Abstract

Acute pancreatitis is a rare but known complication of inflammatory bowel disease in adults. In children, only a few cases with this complication have been reported. We describe a 10-year-old boy with ulcerative colitis who developed acute pancreatitis while on long-term treatment with 5-aminosalicylic acid.
