Abstract

Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) has been defined as diffuse intestinal ischemia that often results in intestinal gangrene in the presence of a patent arterial trunk with vasospasm. A few cases of severe acute pancreatitis have been reported to be complicated by NOMI. Here we report a case of acute hemorrhagic biliary pancreatitis with intestinal gangrene due to NOMI. Clinicians who manage acute pancreatitis should consider NOMI as one of the severe complications of this condition.

Keywords
