Abstract

We report here a case of unexplained chronic pancreatitis diagnosed 4 years before the onset of ulcerative colitis. The diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis was confirmed by recurrent pancreatitis and irregularities of the main pancreatic duct on retrograde pancreatography. None of the classical etiologies for chronic pancreatitis was found. Chronic pancreatitis associated with ulcerative colitis has already been reported in 5 cases. Our case reinforces the hypothesis of a non fortuitous association between both diseases.
