Laura Nunez Herrero, Benjamin Chaucer, Shiwani Singh, Vrushak Deshpande, Sunil H Patel

Acute pancreatitis is a common disease with many well-known etiologies. Rare causes of pancreatitis are still being discovered. We present the 13th reported case of marijuana induced acute pancreatitis. The role of marijuana in pancreatitis is not clearly defined. Studies have begun to clarify the role that cannabinoids may play in this disease process. This case demonstrates the need for further research.
