Approximately 210,000 new cases of acute pancreatitis occur annually in the United States and the incidence is increasing in and outside the United States. Of the new cases, about 80% are the interstitial (edematous) variety and the rest are the necrotizing variety. Necrotizing pancreatitis accounts for most of the morbidity and nearly all the mortality associated with acute pancreatitis.
