ABSTRACT: Pancreatic ascites in the Pediatric age group is a rare condition. Here two cases are presented. They were successfully managed with the use of subcutaneous octreotide. One of the cases was a haemorrhagic ascites and the other was a leaking pseudocyst. After a poor response to initial conservative treatment and repeated paracentesis, octreotide therapy was institutes. Octreotide has been found to be an important and effective agent both as an adjunct to surgery and in cases where initial conservative treatment has been unsuccessful.
