A case of pancreatitis resulted from a gallstone in common bile duct.
A 40 year-old woman who suffered from severe abdominal pain(centered in the upper middle part of the belly) and vomiting but did not relieve the symptoms for few days. She was diagnosed with gastroinstestinal disorder and she was treating with antacid drug for several days but not responded to treatment at all. On ultrasound scanning we found out that she had an enlargement of the pancreas and fluid debris at the tail and at the Morison’ pouch as well. On CT Scanner we have also discovered a blurring of pancreatic margin, the increased density of peripancreatic fat tissue( DIRTY FAT) and especially a gallstone about 6mm in diameter at the end of CBD that was the main reason for the pancreatitis we supposed. So that the patient does need to perform an Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to take a stone out to release the blockage as soon as posible. Please take a look at the following pictures:
