Abstract

Acute pancreatitis is a relatively common condition in the hospital. About 75% of cases are associated with excessive alcohol use or gallstones, and only 0.1 to 2% are drug-induced. The clinical and pathologic findings are similar regardless of the inciting cause. We have suspicion that metronidazole-induced pancreatitis occurs at a significantly higher incidence, or maybe exclusively, in females.
