AbstractBackground: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is usually a self-limiting process; however, 25 % of patients present with or subsequently develop a severe form of the disease that is associated with a mortality of up to 50 %.The neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a measure of the divergence of these two WCC (white cell count) components (lymphocytes and neutrophils), which may be more accurate than the total WCC or individual neutrophil/lymphocyte counts in predicting poor outcome in patients with acute pancreatitis. Material and methods: The present study will be carried out in all the in patients diagnosed to have acute pancreatitis in the Department of Medicine and Department of General Surgery, at All India institute of medical sciences, New Delhi. and 50 cases will be studied. Study duration of between Aug 2019 To June 2022.Conclusion: The Acute pancreatitis is one of the more commonly encountered etiologies in the emergency setting and its incidence is rising. Presentations range from a mild self- limiting condition (MAP) which usually responds to conservative management,to one with significant morbidity and mortality in its most severe forms (SAP).
