Pancreatitis as initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus.


Pancreatitis as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus is rare. Two cases are reported of young female patients who presented with fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and elevated levels of pancreatic enzymes. They were diagnosed with acute severe pancreatitis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus. There are a few reports in the literature about this association, but the pathogenesis and treatment are still controversial.
