Pancreatitis in Pregnancy - A Case Report

Dr. M. Sree Supriya JR, Dr. B. Preethi

Abstract: Introduction: Acute pancreatitis during pregnancy is a rare event and can be associated with high maternal mortality and fetal loss. Cholelithiasis is thought to be the most common causative factor of acute pancreatitis, but, in many cases, the cause remains unclear. Affects approximately 1 in 10,000 individuals and frequency of the disorder doesnt change in pregnancy. Case report: We report a case of a 24 years old woman at 21wks & 28 wks of gestation, who presented twice with severe pain confined to the upper abdomen and radiating to the back. The patient was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, which was managed conservatively. Conclusion: Therefore it is important to consider acute pancreatitis when a pregnant woman presents with upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting in order to improve fetal and maternal outcomes for patients with acute pancreatitis.
