Fibrocalculous Pancreatic Diabetes (FCPD) is a form of diabetes secondary to tropical chronic pancreatitis. While majority of patients have onset of diabetes in youth childhood onset FCPD is less common. We found that 10.8% of diabetic with onset below 20 years of age had FCPD. The clinical features of childhood onset FCPD were similar to older age group patients. FCPD must be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of childhood onset diabetes in geographical areas where this entity is common.
