One of the most frequent emergencies in the surgery department is acute pancreatitis, which is typically managed conservatively. Along with the varying involvement of different tissues, it entails pancreatic inflammation. Aim: To study the clinical demographic profile of acute pancreatitis. Design: Prospective case control study.
Material and Methods: 100 patients (27 females and 73 males) who attended the out-patient clinic of the Department of Surgery at the Government Medical College in Kathua between January 2022 and November 2022 made up the study group. All of these patients were admitted to the department of surgery after an acute pancreatitis diagnosis was confirmed radiographically utilising the USG and also by serum amylase and lipase levels. A proper history was taken from them and a meticulously the cause behind the causation was found out. Results: While alcohol was the most common cause in men, gall bladder stone illness remained the most common cause in the group, with 55% of patients presenting with it. The majority of the patients were male, and the 40 to 60 age group made up 67% of the patient population. Conclusion: Our study revealed that the most frequent cause of acute pancreatitis in men is alcohol consumption, whereas gall bladder stone disease continues to be the most prevalent cause overall and affects people most frequently between the ages of 40 and 60.
