Acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis

  • William Saphir

Summary and Conclusions

Recent experimental studies have indicated that human acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis may be the result of an ischemic insult upon a previously damaged pancreas. A case of acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis is reported presenting clinical and post mortem evidence to support the validity of the aforementioned experimental conclusions. It is suggested that individuals with diminished pancreatic function be protected from vascular insults as far as possible.
