Abstract

We reported a case of acute pancreatitis associated with type V hyperlipoproteinemia. A 27-year-old woman was admitted at 25 weeks of gestation with persistent nausea, vomiting, progressive epigastric pain. She had very severe hypertriglyceridemia. Her serum amylase level was elevated. An ultrasound
scan of abdomen was normal, with no evidence of cholelithiasis but there was perisplenic fluid accumulation. A diagnosis of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypertriglyceridemia was made. With early conservative treatment the patient’s condition was effectively improved and she was discharged from the hospital 8 days later. After 12 weeks, cesarean section was performed due to previous cesarean section. She was discharged home three days later with her baby.
