Post-ERCP acute infected necrotising pancreatitis in a patient with Cushing’s disease
This report discusses the case of patient KT, who suffered from acute necrotising pancreatitis following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for treatment of common bile duct (CBD) calculi. After a summary of KT’s complex medical history, the epidemiology and pathophysiology of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) are discussed. Finally, recent research on treatment of severe necrotising pancreatitis is reviewed, focussing on strategies to reduce morbidity and mortality from this devastating complication of a common procedure like ERCP.
