Pancreatitis following the administration of L-asparaginase (L-asp) has been well documented. However, the progression of such pancreatitis to pseudocyst formation in some patients has been rarely reported. The few reported cases have been teenagers, with the exception of one adult. All pscudocysts required surgical management. This report docume nts a pancreatic pscudocyst in a seven-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukemia whose treatment regimen included L-asp. The pseudocyst was managed medically with nasogastric decompression, intravenous hyperalimentation, and antiblotics. The pscudocyst resolved spontaneously in one month without complication.
