Abstract

Hypertriglyceridemia induced pancreatitis (HTGP) is found in patients with hyperlipidemia, alcohol intake, and obesity. It is essential to study the etiology, accurately diagnose and provide adequate management for pancreatitis at the earliest. We are reporting 18 cases of HTGP with a pattern of admissions with similar clinical characteristics.
