Chronic pancreatitis - Definition


Definition


Chronic pancreatitis is a long-standing inflammation of the pancreas, a digestive gland located deep in the abdomen, connected to the upper section of the small intestine. The principal symptom is severe abdominal pain in the upper part of the abdomen that often spread to the back, typically provoked by food consumption and relieved by anti-inflammatory agents. The underlying cause for chronic pancreatitis is primarily a recurring acute pancreatitis, often in cases of acute alcohol poisoning. Many other causes are possible, including medication, genetic disease, or obstruction of the pancreatic ducts, and so on. Over the long term, pancreatic failure can occur with digestive problems with associated diabetes.
