Pancreatis

Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancreatis is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
 
Although typically resulting from gallstones or alcoholism, pancreatitis occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. There are two types of pancreatitis: acute and chronic. Acute pancreatitis occurs suddenly, lasts for a short period of time, and usually resolves on its own. Chronic pancreatitis does not resolve itself and results in a slow destruction of the pancreas. Possible symptoms of pancreatitis include a swollen and tender abdomen (stomach), pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, fever, and a rapid pulse.
