The temperate person who occasionally overindulges in alcohol will not ordinarily develop acute pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis in the alcoholic develops only after the changes of chronic pancreatitis have developed, and relapsing attacks of acute pancreatitis may stop or may no longer occur if the patient stops drinking, even though progressive destruction of the pancreas continues. Other forms of pancreatitis which the clinician may encounter, and should always consider, are described.
