Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis

Inflammation of the pancreas is called Pancreatitis. When the pancreas becomes inflamed, the digestive enzymes inside it attack and damage the tissues that produce them. Acute Pancreatitis occurs suddenly and can resolve itself within a few days. Chronic Pancreatitis occurs when the inflammation does not heal or improve. Both types of Pancreatitis are serious and can lead to health complications.
