Pancreatic abscesses consequent to acute necrotic-hemorrhagic pancreatitis (ANHP) are reported increasingly frequently. This is probably due to the fact that the present medical and reanimation treatment of ANHP leads to longer survival times, which more easily result in complications of the disease, such as abscesses, fistulas, and pseudocysts [10].
