Abstract

Acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) represents a severe form of acute pancreatitis resulting in necrosis (diffuse or local) of the pancreas and peripancreatic fat tissue. It can be accompanied by signs of multiorgan deficiency or even failure. This gives rise to shock, pulmonary insufficiency and renal failure; gastrointestinal hemorrhage, DIC, and severe metabolic disorders may occur as well.
