Acute pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory reaction caused by various causes, which leads to the activation of pancreatic enzymes in the pancreas, resulting in the self digestion, edema, bleeding and even necrosis of pancreatic tissue. It is characterized by acute epigastric pain, nausea, vomiting, fever and increased blood pancreatin. The severity of the lesions varies. The mild cases are mainly pancreatic edema, which is common in clinic. The condition is often self limiting and the prognosis is good. It is also known as mild acute pancreatitis. A few severe cases of pancreatic hemorrhage and necrosis, often secondary infection, peritonitis and shock, with high mortality, are called severe acute pancreatitis. Clinical pathology often divides acute pancreatitis into edema type and hemorrhagic necrosis type.
