Note: I am fully aware of acute obstructive Pancreatitis and chronic
recurrent pancreatitis. But, if obstruction is entirely ruled out by all tests,
including E.R.C.P., etc., and no abnormal common bile duct-pancreatic duct reflux could be demonstrated, then isn't it possible that the classical
symptoms and elevated amylase and lipase studies could possibly be due
to a Viral Pancreatitis? Further Note: The patient had a cholecystectomy
many years prior to present complaints.
