Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancretitus is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
Pancreatitis occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. In most cases, pancreatitis is caused by gallstones or alcoholism, although there are several causes of this condition. Normally, the pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine to help digest food. However, when these enzymes become active in the pancreas, they start digesting the pancreas itself and cause pancreatitis. Possible symptoms of this condition include pain in the upper abdomen (stomach), vomiting, and fever.
