The evolution, either progression or regression or persistence, of the pancreatic damage, which occurs during acute pancreatitis had scarcely been investigated. Although recently there were two large symposia on the classification of pancreatitis [1, 2], which were in part concerned with the state after acute pancreatitis, there is no general agreement on what is the outcome after acute pancreatitis. This is due to the following reasons.
