Acute pancreatitis due to a duodenal ulcer.

Pyeon SI, Hwang JH, Kim YT, Lee BS, Lee SH, Lee JN, Cheong JH, Oh KJ - Clin Endosc (2014)

Bottom Line: Duodenal ulcers and acute pancreatitis are two of the most commonly encountered gastrointestinal diseases among the general population.However, duodenal ulcer-induced pancreatitis is very rarely reported worldwide.This report elaborates on a distinct medical treatment that contributes to partial or complete treatment of acute pancreatitis induced by a duodenal ulcer scar.

Duodenal ulcers and acute pancreatitis are two of the most commonly encountered gastrointestinal diseases among the general population. However, duodenal ulcer-induced pancreatitis is very rarely reported worldwide. This report elaborates on a distinct medical treatment that contributes to partial or complete treatment of acute pancreatitis induced by a duodenal ulcer scar.

Figure 2: Endoscopic ultrasonography image. (A) No dilatation of the common bile duct is observed. (B) A dilatation of the pancreatic duct and pancreatic parenchymal mass are not observed. (C) Gallbladder stones or sludge are not observed.

Mentions: From the follow-up abdominal CT scan taken on the next day, mild diffuse enlargement of the pancreas and subtle peripancreatic strand-like infiltration were observed. Abdominal ultrasonography on the same day showed mild diffuse edematous enlargement of the pancreas, probably due to acute pancreatitis. Any stones or sludge within the gallbladder and bile duct were not observed. Diffuse gallbladder wall thickening, which could be considered secondary change, was noted. Endoscopic ultrasonography findings contained neither dilatation of the common bile duct and pancreatic duct nor pancreatic parenchymal masses (Fig. 2).
