Abstract

Pancreatic cancer presenting as acute pancreatitis is relatively uncommon. Pancreatic cancer should be included in the differential diagnosis of “idiopathic” acute pancreatitis, particularly in the elderly. The following case report describes a patient in whom pancreatic cancer presented as acute pancreatitis with pseudocyst formation and subsequent resolution with octreotide therapy. Various implications of this case are reviewed.
