Abstract

Duodenal intramural hematoma is a rare condition, mostly described in children and young adults that can be a complication of duodenal biopsy, especially in patients with predisposing hemorrhagic diathesis. It can determine secondary pancreatitis because of ampullary hematoma. Noonan Syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by short stature, typical facial dysmorphisms, congenital heart defects and other anomalies such as bleeding problems which have been reported in up to 55% of patients. We herein report a case of duodenal hematoma with pancreatitis developed after endoscopic biopsy in a boy who was initially suspected of having celiac disease on the base of his short stature and growth retardation. Afterwards a more careful past medical history collection and objective examination revealed characteristic features of NS which could have been picked-up in advance, thus avoiding an investigation, such as the duodenal endoscopic biopsy, which in NS patient is potentially more risky.
