Through this case and brief review of the literature, we try to focus on the etiology of this rare condition, the clinical particularities, and treatment modalities.

Case :
A 10-year-old child presented with left upper quadrant pain, associated with vomiting. The pain rapidly spread to involve the whole abdomen. There was a history of blunt abdominal trauma in the form of multiple blows with closed fists to the abdomen, a day prior to presentation. Physical examination revealed an elevated temperature and severe tenderness in the left upper abdomen. Digital rectal examination was normal. There was no palpable mass. Laboratory studies revealed a white blood cell count of 10,500/mm3 and hemoglobin of 10.6 g/dL.......
