Radiologic examination revealed a tumor located in the major pancreatic duct near the confluence with common bile duct. The patient recovered completely following pancreatico-duodenectomy. Histology of the tumor confirmed pancreatic duct papilloma, a rare tumor. We report this case because of its rarity in a young child.
