Core Tip Abdominal cocoon syndrome is rare in children. In particular, cases with no history of previous peritoneal dialysis are practically nonexistent. Our report of a 12-year-old boy reveals that abdominal surgery can be a trigger for the development of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS). Indications for surgery for EPS are usually due to mechanical ileus, and the final diagnosis is made intraoperatively. Surgical therapy for EPS is the first choice, and total intestinal enterolysis of EPS seems to be the best approach. The long-term prognosis for children is good.
