George Chrysos, Stelios Kokkoris, John Protopsaltis, Gregory Giannoulis, Panagiotis Korantzopoulos

Context :A variety of infectious agents have been reported as rare causes of acute pancreatitis.  Case report: We briefly describe a 36-yearold man who presented with acute pancreatitis and a maculopapular rash. The marked elevation in antibody titer against coxsackievirus B, as well as the skin biopsy, was compatible with acute coxsackievirus B viral infection.Conclusion :This case highlights the fact that an appropriate investigation for viral infections should be performed in patientshaving acute pancreatitis and no classical risk factors.
