Abstract

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Acute Pancreatitis (AP) are usually perceived as two different types of pancreatic pathology. Even though, there is a growing evidence that there is a mutual influence between these two diseases.Our aim is to assess the risk of patients with T2DM to develop AP according to the three grades of severity of Atlanta 2012 Classification of AP. We consider the hypotheses that patients with T2DM have a greater risk of more severe forms of AP because they have a reduced resistance for acute illnesses. We analyzed all consecutive cases of Acute Pancreatitis admitted to Surgical Clinic during the entire year of 2014.
