Introduction: Pancreatic injuries are not common after blunt and penetrating trauma, but can be challenging to diagnose and manage. Case report: Twenty-three year old man, injured during a fall from a motorcycle two days earlier, was admitted to Department of Surgery, University Clinical Centre Tuzla because of suspicion of pancreatic trauma. Immediately after hospitalization, patient underwent laboratory and radiological tests that revealed the existence of pancreatic trauma, so we opted for urgent surgical treatment. Surgery and early postoperative course were normal and the patient was discharged on the ninth postoperative day. Conclusion: Proper diagnosis and well-selected surgical treatment significantly increases the chances for recovery of these patients.

Key words: pancreatic injury, blunt trauma.
