Involvement of the juxtarenal spaces and kidneys in pancreatitis has been well known. Although delineation of the regions of accumulation of exudate has been elegantly confirmed with the advent and advance of refined computerized tomography (CT) there has been relatively little description in the earlier literature of these phenomena. This essay serves to illustrate the wide range of findings that have been encountered and recorded more recently.
