Abstract: Most cases of pancreatitis are mild and self limited. On the other hand, approximately one quarter of patients with pancreatitis may develop vascular complications. Pancreatitis in combination with vascular complications is dangerous and potentially lethal. The survival of patients with pancreatitis and vascular complications depends on the early diagnosis of these complications. We report a case of an elderly male patient who had recurrent pancreatitis. On radiological imaging, patient was found have portal vein, splenic vein and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis. Patient recovered after emergent and timely management. The article focuses on the aspects of etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of acute pancreatitis with venous thrombosis.
