Abstract

We recently experienced a case of spontaneous perforation of infected necrosis into the colon and duodenum during the course of acute pancreatitis in a 63 year-old male patient. Enteric perforations or fistulas in the setting of acute pancreatitis implicate severe underlying pathology and have substantial morbidity and mortality. In the meantime it has generally been accepted that infected pancreatic or peripancreatic necrosis should be managed surgically as soon as possible. Enteric perforations in the present case contributed to transient improvement of the patient's infection sign and condition, and thus an early operation was able to be avoided. Delayed surgical management resulted in complete recovery of the patient without postoperative morbidity. Herein we report an unusual complication of acute pancreatitis.
