The Role of Acute Pancreatitis in Pediatric Burn Patients
Rivero, H.G., Lee, J.O., Herndon, D.N., et al. (2011). The Role of Acute Pancreatitis in Pediatric Burn Patients. Burns. 37(1):82-5.
The authors looked at autopsy reports of 78 burned children for reported evidence of pancreatic inflammation, and fat/parenchymal necrosis. The incidence of pancreatitis was found to be low, but its negative effects on mortality were found to be high. The authors advocate for increased monitoring and management of pancreatitis in burned children.
