  • Abstract

    Acute on chronic pancreatitis is the acute inflammation of the pancreas in a previously injured pancreas. The incidence of acute pancreatitis is estimated to be 5–80/100,000 of the general population and the incidence of acute pancreatitis in pregnancy varies and is approximately 1 in 1000–1 in 10,000 births. This report presents a case of a 26-year-old G3P1 L1A1/previous cesarean section who presented at 36 weeks’ gestation with acute abdominal pain radiating to back. She had underwent pancreatic surgery 6 years ago for calculi. Records were not available. She was diagnosed as acute on chronic pancreatitis with ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. She underwent elective repeat lower segment cesarean section with bilateral tubal ligation and delivered a healthy male baby. Even though the maternal mortality is nil in the modern era, the fetal mortality is 4.7% and this case supports the prior opinion that when properly managed acute pancreatitis in pregnancy does not carry a dismal prognosis as in the past.
