Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancriatitis is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
When certain digestive enzymes start digesting the pancreas, it causes an inflammation known as pancreatitis. This condition can be caused by several factors, with the most common causes being gallstones or alcoholism. Possible symptoms include a swollen and tender abdomen (stomach), pain in the upper abdomen, fever, and vomiting. Depending on the type of pancreatitis and the symptoms, treatment may include medications, surgery, or lifestyle changes.
