Abstract

Background and aim of the study

Acute pancreatitis is a surgical condition which may impact other organs resulting in damage to multiple organs or death. This study evaluates the epidemiology of acute and chronic pancreatitis in the state of Odisha.

Methodology

This study was a prospective study carried out in a single hospital, IMS & SUM Hospital, Bhubaneswar during 2016–2017.

Results

Results showed that there were more acute cases of pancreatitis (n=65, 73.9%) and overall pancreatitis was more prevalent in men (n=70; 79%). Unfortunately, an overwhelming majority of the patients do not know what aggravates (n=71; 81.8%) or alleviates (n=79; 89.8%) their condition.

Conclusion

Men were more likely to develop acute and chronic pancreatitis than women. Future studies should explore the genetic interactions modifying disease development, especially in India.
