- Abdominal Exam - Abdominal tenderness and rigidity - Bowel sounds decreased - Palpable upper abdominal mass Acute fluid collections and pseudocysts Skin Exam Skin Exam - Erythematous skin Nodule (Subcutaneous Fat Necrosis) Subcutaneous Fat NecrosisSubcutaneous Fat Necrosis - Cullen's Sign (periumbilical discoloration) Cullen's Sign Cullen's Sign - Turner's Sign (flank discoloration) * due to exudation of blood-stained fluid into the subcutaneous tissue, usually 72 h into the illness.

- Acute Pancreatitis Clinical Manifestations PANCREATICPERIPANCREATIC Adjacent viscera: SYSTEMIC Mild: edema, inflammation, fat necrosis Severe: phlegmon, necrosis, hemorrhage, infection, abscess, fluid collections Retroperitoneum, perirenal spaces, mesocolon, omentum, and mediastinum ileus, obstruction, perforation ileus, obstruction, perforation Cardiovascular: hypotension Pulmonary: pleural effusions, ARDS Renal: acute tubular necrosis Hematologic: disseminated intravascular coag. Metabolic: hypocalcemia, hyperglycemia

- Diagnosis: Biochemical - Serum Amylase elevated Serum Amylase Serum Amylase Nonspecific Nonspecific Returns to normal in 48-72 hours Returns to normal in 48-72 hours Normal amylase does not exclude pancreatitis Normal amylase does not exclude pancreatitis Level of elevation does not predict disease severity Level of elevation does not predict disease severity - Serum Lipase elevated Lipase Specific for pancreatic disease Specific for pancreatic disease Returns to normal in 7-14 days Returns to normal in 7-14 days

A score of eight or more at admission is usually considered indicative of severe disease

- Pancreatic Cancer Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignancies. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignancies. An estimated 32,300 patients will die of pancreatic cancer in year 2006. The tenth most common malignancy in the United State. Despite recent advances,in pathology, molecular basis and treatment, the overall survival rate remains 4% for all stages and races. Palliative care represents an important aspect of care in patient with pancreatic malignancy. Identifying and treating disease related symptomology are priorities. Common problems include pain, intestinal obstruction, biliary obstruction, pancreatic insufficiency, anorexia-cachexia and depression.
