An ischemic origin of acute pancreatitis has been considered for a long time, at least as an aiding factor: ischemia has a fundamental role in the development of necrotizing pancreatitis from an oedematous one. Shock, heart condition and celiac-mesenteric ischemia can determine the onset of an acute pancreatitis through local ischemic lesions. Personal experience with a case of acute pancreatitis following an intestinal ischemic failure is reported. The duration of ischemia and, in particular, the free radicals formation during the organ reperfusion have been considered as the main pathogenetic factors. In the observed case, the ischemic hypothesis seems to be supported from the lack of other known factors and from the intestinal ischemic failure episode.
