Isolated Superior Mesenteric VeinThrombosis in Acute Pancreatitis: A Case Report
The most common vascular complication of acute pancreatitis is thrombosis of the splenic vein.
Isolated thrombosis of the superior mesenteric vein is rare and may lead to mesenteric ischemia
and bowel infarction. We report the case of a 39 years old patient received for acute pancreatitis
with a Ranson score less than 3 and image scanner for a grade C of Balthazar and a superior mesenteric
vein thrombosis. The outcome was favorable with improvement of symptoms under medical
treatment including anti-coagulant therapy. The contrast enhancing abdominal CT showed
an absence of superior mesenteric thrombosis.
