Over the last one-decade, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided drainage has evolved as a preferred modality for treating pseudocyst over conventional surgical or radiological procedures among adults using plastic stents or lumen opposing stents; however, studies on EUS-guided pancreatic of pseudocyst among children are mainly in the form of case reports or small case series. Therefore, we aimed to describe four pediatric cases of the pseudo-pancreatic cyst treated successfully with EUS-guided cysto-gastrostomy using plastic stents. In all four cases, EUS-guided drainage was successful using plastic stent with no major complications, and none of them required any follow-up endoscopic or surgical intervention. EUS-guided cysto-gastrostomy offers an excellent and safe alternative to surgery for treating pancreatic pseudocysts in children.
