Abstract

Gallstones are infrequent in children, and usually asymptomatic. However, complications can be severe if pancreatitis ensues. Recent reports indicate above-average prevalence of cholelithiasis in Down syndrome. We report the successfully treated case of a 7-year-old girl with Down syndrome who developed pancreatitis secondary to cholelithiasis.
