Gastroscopy-Induced Pancreatitis: A Rare Cause of Post-Procedure Abdominal Pain

Neesa Fadaee, Stefaan De Clercq


A 52-year-old man presented to the emergency department a few hours post gastroscopy with biopsies of the second part of the duodenum (D2) and colonoscopy with severe acute abdominal pain. On examination he had peri-umbilical tenderness. Subsequent laboratory and biochemical investigations revealed acute pancreatitis. The patient went on to develop complications of acute pancreatitis including bilateral pleural effusions and ascites. He was managed conservatively and was discharged home on day 16 of admission with a plan for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the future.
