FERRER CASTRO, Jacno Erik; MARQUEZ VINENT, Rosaida  y  RODRIGUEZ GONZALEZ, Zahilyn. Serious acute pancreatitis in a smoking patient. MEDISAN [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.2, pp.276-285.  Epub 24-Abr-2020. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a 51 years patient with personal pathological history of being a heavy smoker is described, who went to the emergency room of Dr. Joaquín Castillo Duany Teaching Provincial Hospital in Santiago de Cuba due to a dyspnea associated with high figures of blood pressure and livedo reticularis in the abdominal anterior face. Due to the clinical pattern and the results of the complementary tests, he was referred to the Intensive Cares Unit, where later on he was diagnosed serious acute pancreatitis, after an exploratory laparotomy where ischemic areas in the intestinal loops were found. The patient maintained a torpid clinical course and he died because of a multiple dysfunction of organs.

Palabras clave : acute pancreatitis; livedo reticularis; hypertension; dyspnea; multiorganic failure; Intensive Cares Unit.
