Dengue fever presenting with acute pancreatitis: A case report

  • General Medicine

Acute pancreatitis is an acute inflammation of the pancreas, with subsequent involvement of surrounding tissues and organ systems. Viral etiology of acute pancreatitis is uncommon; however, multiple viruses have been implicated. Dengue virus has also been found responsible for acute pancreatitis, with possible etiologies linked to direct viral invasion, autoimmune mechanism, or as a complication of dengue shock syndrome. We present a case of a 24-year-old female who presented with epigastric pain and vomiting in the background of a febrile illness and was later diagnosed with mild acute pancreatitis complicating dengue fever.
