Acute Pancreatitis Induced by Acute Type A Aortic Dissection: A Case Report

Ziyu Zheng, Jianghui Liu, Yingxiong Huang, Hong Zhan, Yan Xiong.

Acute aortic dissection can present with a variety of complaints. We present a case involving a man who complained of
sudden upper abdominal pain and vomiting 12 hours ago. He was initially diagnosed as acute pancreatitis based on his
history and blood work but on computed tomographic scan, also was found to have a Stanford type A aortic dissection.
His dissection and pancreatitis was managed medically including tight blood pressure control and protease inhibitor
administration. But the patient died of a cardiac arrest 14 hours later.

Key words: acute pancreatitis; acute type A aortic dissection
