Acute pancreatitis associated with massive bleeding due to a duodenal ulcer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 74-year-old man presented to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain in addition to anemia and melena, which were suspected to be due to gastrointestinal bleeding. Computed tomography (CT) revealed a blood-filled duodenum and acute pancreatitis. We prioritized treatments for pancreatitis, as the vital signs were stable, and temporary hemostasis was achieved. Two days later, esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a duodenal ulcer with an exposed vessel, and endoscopic hemostasis was performed. We urge clinicians to consider the possibility of pancreatitis associated with massive bleeding due to a duodenal ulcer.
