چکیده    Introduction: traumatic injury to the pancreas is not common, but if the diagnosis is delayed or misdiagnosed in the emergency department (ed), the condition is associated with high morbidity and mortality and raises a question about the quality of emergency care. here, we describe a rare case of blunt abdominal trauma resulted in isolated pancreas injury. case presentation: a 25-year-old young male came to our emergency room (er) in a conscious, anxious state from a nearby town with a history of roadside trauma. further investigations revealed an isolated pancreatic injury due to trauma with no other major injuries, which occurred due to a sudden high-speed impact of the steering wheel to the epigastrium of a driver while driving the car, severely compressing the pancreas between the backbone and steering wheel. the patient was admitted to the intensive care unit for close observation and monitoring. he was managed conservatively on intravenous fluids, antibiotics, analgesics, and vasopressors. he was discharged after five days in a hemodynamically stable and afebrile condition, on a normal diet. conclusion: isolated pancreatic injury following blunt abdominal trauma is rare, and the symptoms are difficult to analyze early due to its retroperitoneal anatomy. early detection and early intervention are important in the ed, and if left unrecognized, could result in a poor outcome.
