Resumen

CHAVEZ-ACOSTA, Karla Lorena; LIZARRAGA-LOPEZ, Sandra; ZARATE-CASTANON, Patricia  y  GARCIA-NAVARRETE, Roberto. Pancreatic encephalopathy, a case report. Acta pediatr. Méx [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.4, pp.337-346. ISSN 2395-8235.

Pancreatic encephalopathy (PE) is an uncommon complication of acute pancreatitis. PE, one of multiple organ dysfunction syndromes; generally occurs in the early stage of severe acute pancreatitis and has a high mortality of 57%. We report a 16 years old female patient who presented neurological symptoms during an episode of acute pancreatitis. Other etiologies were discarded, and PE was considered. We discuss clinical and laboratorial factors associated with this complication. We also discuss about the role of pro-inflammatory molecules as neuromodulators within the central nervous system during the evolution of patients with acute pancreatitis.

Palabras llave : pancreatic encephalopathy; acute pediatric pancreatitis.
