Author(s): Dr. Ankur Modi and Dr. Malhar Patel

Abstract: Pancreatic necrosis is the presence of nonviable pancreatic parenchyma or peripancreatic fat, it can be manifested as focal area or diffuse involvement of gland. Up to 20% of patients with acute pancreatitis develop pancreatic necrosis. It is important to identify and proper treatment because most patients who develop multiorgan failure have necrotizing pancreatitis. Necrotizing pancreatitis associated with bacterial translocation usually involving enteric Flora such as gram negative rods e.g. E. coli, Klebsiella and pseudomonas and enterococcus. While an uncommon occurrence, it is possible for patients diagnosed with necrotizing pancreatitis to develop colonic ileus, obstruction or perforation. The definite treatment of infected pancreatic necrosis is surgical debridement with necrosectomy, closed continuous irrigation or open packaging.
