Clinical follow-up of the patients was done in terms of the following parameters: In table IIwe can observe the characteristics of the patients according to the severity markers.

Normal enhancement of the entire pancreas. This maybe explained because it is a third level concentration center in which most of the AP patients are looked after in second level centers, therefore our results cannot be extrapolated to the population in general; it would be important to perform this analysis on these kind of attention centers.

Pancreatitis is one of most complex and clinically challenging of all abdominal disorders [ 2 ]. Here another case of interstitial pancreatitis without necrosis. What are the findings?
