Hemosuccus Pancreaticus Complicating Chronic Pancreatitis - A Case Report of Definitive Surgical Management

Hemosuccus pancreaticus is a known complication of chronic pancreatitis. Most cases reported in literature are associated with alcoholic chronic pancreatitis. A high index of suspicion, appropriate investigations like CT abdomen and a coeliac axis angiography clinched the diagnosis which was followed by prompt surgical intervention by distal pancreatectomy -splenectomy which resulted in cure of haemorrhage. Our case is reported in view of its association with tropical chronic pancreatitis and also because a definitive surgical procedure instead of an angioembolisation resulted in one stage cure of haemorrhage and relief from chronic pancreatitis. A review of available literature also is presented here.
