Abstract

Background: Acute pancreatitis is a protean disease capable of wide clinical variation ranging from mild discomfort to apocalyptic prostration

Methods: This study was conducted in the department of surgery, RNT Medical College and Maharana Bhupal Govt. Hospital, Udaipur. A total of 35 cases of acute pancreatitis were studied

Results: Out of these 35 patients, 25(71.42%) had favourable outcome, while 4(15.4%) patient had complication (pancreatic pseudocyst in 3, and recurrence after 7 months in 1 patient), 3(8.57%) patient died and 3 (8.57%) patient could not be followed up due to non-compliance of patient.

Conclusion: We concluded that history, clinical examination, radiological and blood investigations are helpful to come to a conclusive diagnosis and severity of acute pancreatitis and most of these cases can be managed conservatively and the use of Octreotide therapy helps in the favourable outcome.
