Pathology of Pancreatitis

  Dr Sampurna Roy MD


Pancreatitis is defined as an inflammatory condition of the exocrine pancreas that results from injury to acinar cells.

Depending on its severity and duration, pancreatitis presents in a variety of clinical forms.   

These range from a mild, self limited disease, consisting of acute inflammation and edema of the stroma with little or no acinar cell necrosis, to the more severe and sometimes fatal acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis with massive necrosis.

A debilitating form, chronic relapsing pancreatitis, is characterized by recurrent attacks of severe abdominal pain and progressive fibrosis, ultimately leading to pancreatic insufficiency.
