Pancreatitis is an exocrine pancreas inflammation as a result of acinar cell damage and can be classified as acute or chronic. Acute pancreatitis is the reversible damage of liver parenchyma characterized by abdominal pain and an increased amylase and lipase serum levels. Its natural history ranges from a full recovery to a weakening chronic disease. In recent years, work has been focused on the development of classification guidelines, etiology determination, limitation of the complications and treatment. A systematic check-up with the objective of presenting the information based on more recent and accepted evidence

Key words: amylase, organic failure, lipase, pancreatitis, pancreatic pseudocyst.
