Pancreatitus

Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancreatitus is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
 
Pancreatitis occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. The pancreas is a large gland located behind the stomach that secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine. Although there are several causes of this condition, the most common ones are gallstones and alcoholism. There are two types of pancreatitis, acute and chronic. The acute form occurs suddenly, lasts for a short period of time, and usually resolves on its own. The chronic form does not resolve itself and results in a slow destruction of the pancreas.
