Abstract:   (732 Views)
Acutepancreatitis can infrequently be a life-threatening complication of hypertriglyceridemia. Rarely, hypertriglyceridemia can originate from an inborn genetic error in lipoproteins metabolism. This condition can be manifested by very high serum triglyceride levels (>1000 mg/dl) and a more severe and lethal form of pancreatitis. Here, we present a case of acute pancreatic which was found out to be a complication of an undiagnosed familial hypertriglyceridemia who died in spite of receiving conventional care and treatment. Focus is on the importance of considering infrequent etiologies of acute pancreatitis and application of more effective treatments.
