Acute pancreatitis may be a single valthazar it may be recurrent ; or it may progress to chronic pancreatitis. The images show spontaneous regression of an acute peripancreatic fluid collection APFC.

A Pseudocyst is a collection of pancreatic juice or fluid enclosed by a complete wall of fibrous tissue It occurs in interstitial pancreatitis and the absence of necrotic tissue is imperative for its diagnosis.

Definitive treatment may require distal pancreatectomy or long-term endoscopic drainage. In the management of acute pancreatitis, the treatment is to stop feeding the cruterios, giving them nothing by mouth, giving intravenous fluids to prevent dehydrationand sufficient pain control.


Focal or diffuse enlargement of the pancreas including contour irregularities, non- homogenous attenuation of the gland, dilation of the pancreatic duct and foci of small fluid collections within the gland, as long as there was no evidence of peri-pancreatic disease.

It can be suggested that there does not exist a statistically meaningful correlation between the APACHE-II scale of seriousness and the advanced Balthazar degrees due to the report of a poor correlation between Pearson and Spearman’s, therefore it is likely to rciterios very ill patients with an A or B Balthazar and on the other hand patients with slight acute pancreatitis with D o E Balthazar.

The Pancode system is a checklist for the description of acute pancreatitis and its complications.
