Necrosis del colon: Una complicación infravalorada de la pancreatitis aguda.

Marta Drake, Raúl Pellón, Juan Crespo, Mercedes Acebo, Francisco González Sánchez

Resumen


La pancreatitis aguda debe ser reconocida como una causa potencial de necrosis del colon. Tradicionalmente se le ha prestado escaso interés a las complicaciones colónicas de la pancreatitis aguda. Sin embargo, el desarrollo de una necrosis del colon ensombrece el pronóstico de una pancreatitis aguda de forma muy significativa.

Actualmente la TC es fundamental en el diagnóstico de gran parte de las complicaciones que pueden ocurrir en la pancreatitis aguda, realizándose habitualmente a estos pacientes controles evolutivos con esta técnica de imagen. Se presenta un caso de necrosis del colon diagnosticada en las TC de control realizados a pacientes con pancreatitis aguda.


Colon necrosis as a complication of acute pancreatitis.

 

Abstract                                                                                                                        Acute pancreatitis should be recognized as a potential cause of necrosis of the colon. Traditionally it has received little interest to colonic complications of acute pancreatitis. However, the development of necrosis of colon worse prognosis of acute pancreatitis significantly. Currently CT is essential in the diagnosis of many of the complications that can occur in acute pancreatitis, usually performed in these patients’ evolutionary controls with this imaging technique. A case of necrosis of the colon diagnosed on CT scan performed on patients with acute pancreatitis occurs.  

Key Word: Acute pancreatitis, Colon necrosis, Complication, Computarized tomography.
