Case Reports



Crohn’s disease presenting with acute pancreatitis


Price: €10,00

Crohn’s disease is often accompanied by extraintestinal inflammation. Acute pancreatitis can be a rare manifestation of Crohn’s disease. The present report describes a patient who developed two episodes of pancreatitis before the diagnosis of Crohn’s disease. Clinical and laboratory evaluation excluded other causes of pancreatitis, confirming a direct association of the pancreatitis with Crohn’s disease. This case report supports the hypothesis that acute pancreatitis may precede the clinical manifestations and diagnosis of the underlying inflammatory bowel disease.

A high degree of suspicion combined with early diagnostic modalities may improve survival. We present a case report of fulminant herpetic hepatitis, requiring OLT. In addition, a review of the literature was performed. (Acta gastroenterol. belg., 2014, 77, 359-361). [Product Details...]
