Acute Pancreatitis 

It is a sudden or rapidly developing inflammation of the pancreas. It can range from being a disease which is self limiting and which presents as only a mild abdominal pain to a life thretening condition which does not respond to even the most aggressive medical management. It is therefore essential that the patient gets early assessment once pancreatitis is suspected.
