Abstract

It is estimated that there are more than 210,000 hospital admissions for acute pancreatitis and more than 56,000 admissions for chronic pancreatitis each year in the United States. Pancreatitis comes with numerous complications that can increase morbidity, mortality, and length of hospital stay. Local and systemic complications include pseudocysts, necrosis, sepsis, multiorgan failure, and vascular complications. Thrombosis of the splanchnic venous system occurs in approximately 2% of patients with pancreatitis, but thrombosis is rarely seen in the arterial system. In this report, we describe a case of thrombosis of the abdominal aorta and superior mesenteric artery in a female patient who presented with acute pancreatitis.
