RODRIGUEZ SCHULZ, Diego et al. Severe acute pancreatitis and infection by influenza A (H1N1) virus in a child: case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.113, n.4, pp.e215-e218. ISSN 0325-0075.

Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease of the pancreas, characterized by abdominal pain and high level of pancreatic enzymes. Pancreatitis is the most common disease of pancreas in children and adults. For the diagnosis we need 2 of 3 characteristics: abdominal pain characteristic of acute pancreatitis, amylase and/or lipase 3 times higher than the normal upper limit and characteristic findings in images. The etiologies are multiple: trauma, metabolic disease and infections: mixovirus, HIV, measles, coxsackie, hepatitis B, C, cytomegalovirus, varicella, herpes simplex. Three cases of PA associated with H1N1 Influenza virus were reported, only one in a child with uncomplicated features.

Keywords : Pancreatitis; Acute necrotizing pancreatitis; Infuenza A virus H1N1 subtype; Infection; Virus.
