Abdominal distention and constipation in children can be challenging as clinical problems. The number of possible diagnoses is very large and may be related to rare surgical causes. It can be rarely caused by an annular pancreas. Early recognition is essential for preventing delays in management and potential complications. Here we report a case of an incomplete annular pancreas presenting as abdominal distention and constipation in a 1.5-year-old Syrian boy. The diagnosis was made through an abdominal computed tomography scan (CT).
