Abstract

Multicystic adenomatoid hamartoma is an extremely rare tumor of the pancreas, with only 4 other cases reported in the literature. We report a case of a 4-year old boy who presented with an 8 month history of abdominal pain, steatorrhea, and failure to thrive. Work-up showed severe pancreatic insufficiency and a large, multiseptated, cystic mass originating from the head of the pancreas and compressing the duodenum. The child underwent a classic pancreaticoduodenectomy with portal vein reconstruction. He tolerated the procedure well and has been seen in follow-up.
