She was found to have pancreatitis on computed tomography scanning. Unique to this case are the numerous possible etiologies of her pancreatitis. Thus, this case study systematically reviews the different etiologies of pancreatitis in the AIDS population compared to the general population. Furthermore it discusses the management and treatment of pancreatitis in AIDS.
