Abstract

We describe the radiological and intraoperative correlation of pancreatic laceration in a 76-year-old unrestrained motor-vehicle driver following blunt abdominal trauma. The purpose of this article is to emphasize the importance of recognizing pancreatic injuries in trauma patients, as these injuries are rare and can be overlooked on CT.
