Abstract :

 Isolated duodenal injury following blunt abdominal trauma (BAT) is relatively rare. The incidence of duodenal injuries is 11.2–26% due to blunt

trauma. The choice of treatment must be tailored to the nature of the defect and the amount of tissue lost. We present a series of three cases of
duodenal injury due to trivial trauma of which two cases of duodenal perforation were treated surgically and one was a duodenal hematoma
managed conservatively. Varieties of surgical techniques have been described for the management of patients with duodenal injuries. The surgeon
should select the most appropriate procedure based on the type and conditions of the duodenal injury. CECT scan of abdomen remains valuable tool
in children with BAT for diagnosis and further management.
