Abstract: Background: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an acute inflammatory disease and is one of the most frequent gastrointestinal causes of hospital admission. This study was carried out to compare the efficacy of Glasgow (Imrie) score, C-Reactive Protein and Balthazar score in predicting severity of Acute Pancreatitis based on Revised Atlanta classification (RAC). Aim and objectives: The aim of this study is to compare Glasgow (Imrie) score, C-Reactive Protein and Balthazar score in predicting severity of Acute Pancreatitis based on Revised Atlanta classification (RAC). Methods: This was a prospective observational cohort study carried out at Sir Sayajirao General Hospital from February 2022 to November 2022 and achieved Sample Size-57 patients.
