ERCP was carried out in 8 children under 14 years age. The indications of examinations were in 7 cases obstructive jaundice caused in 3 patients by congenital anomalies of the biliary tract. In one case the ERCP was performed because of acute relapsing pancreatitis. The examinations were carried out under general anesthesia in 5 children and after sedative premedication in 3 cases. No complications of the procedures were recorded. ERCP is a useful method also in children for diagnosing bilio-pancreatic anomalies.
