The literature on pancreatitis is vast but the number of textbooks dealing only with pancreatic disease, particularly its medical aspects, is surprisingly small. The authors, as well as others from Mount Sinai Hospital, have contributed a great deal to current knowledge of pancreatic disorders, and this book represents a culmination of these investigations plus an excellent review of the literature.

Current etiologic mechanisms are thoroughly reviewed, although idiopathic pancreatitis should be mentioned
