Aim: In the present study, the purpose was to evaluate the demographic and clinical data of pediatric patients, who had pancreatitis, who were followed up as outpatients or in the wards, and to evaluate the treatment modalities used along with nutritional status, length of hospital stays, and complications. Methods: This study was carried out by retrospectively evaluating the files of 166 patients identified by INSPPIRE Criteria who were followed up at the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Faculty of Medicine, at xx University between 2011 and 2021. The age, gender, height, weight, known disease, drugs used, follow-up periods by us, complaints on admission, the etiological reason for the diagnosis, type of pancreatitis, length of hospital stay, treatment modalities applied, and complications of the patients were recorded. The PAPPS Scores, Ranson Admission Scores, and Ranson 48th hour Scores of the patients were analyzed. Results: A total of 120 patients (72.3%) had AP, 25 patients (15.1%) had CP, and 21 patient (12.7%) had ARP. According to the Atlanta Criteria, 82.5% were mild and 17.5% were moderate. The most common complaint was abdominal pain and the most common cause was found to be idiopathic. There was a weak and positive correlation between the PAPPS Score, Ranson Admission Score, and length of hospital stay. Conclusion: In the diagnosis and follow-up of pancreatitis, it is important to determine the severity of the disease and to reveal the etiology. Establishing and applying standard approaches for early diagnosis and treatment of patients will lead to prognostic improvement and prevent related complications.
