Acute pancreatitis11 Since majority of the patients with mild acute pancreatitis recover without any short term complications or long term sequelae. So majority of the studies have focussed on management of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. I would also Acute pancreatitisClinical presentationAbdominal painEpigastricRadiates to the back (belt painWorse in supine positionNausea and vomitingFeverLaboratoryElevated amylase or lipase > 3x upper limits of normalLipase has slightly higher sensitivity and specificity and greater overall accuracy than amylase (Evidence category A)RadiologyAbnormal sonogram or CT

Differential DiagnosisCholedocholithiasisPerforated ulcerMesenteric ischemiaIntestinal obstructionEctopic pregnancyAcute pancreatitisClinical presentationMild: edema, inflammation, fat necrosisSevere: phlegmon, necrosis, hemorrhage, infection, abscess, fluid collections
