The incidence of pancreatic injury in blunt abdominal trauma ranges from 0.2 to 12%, with mortality rates as high as 30%.The pancreas and duodenum are commonly injured simultaneously, with an incidence of 50-98%, often also involving the left hepatic lobe and spleen. Isolated pancreatic injuries are rare, occurring with an incidence of less than 30%. Mortality and morbidity significantly increase when the diagnosis is not recognized at admission. Thus, a prompt diagnosis of pancreatic injury is critical in delivering appropriate and timely interventions and for minimizing complications. Computed tomography (CT) is the imaging modality of choice in stable patients and provides an excellent means for detecting and characterizing solid visceral injuries.
