The previous statement takes relevance due to the fact that our study points out that there is no correlation between the Balthazar degree and the hematocrit level, therefore it is essential to perform the CT in order to point out advanced degrees of Balthazar with necrosis, independently of the hematocrit level and pancreatittis Ranson and APACHE-II scales.

Early onset of organ failure is the best predictor of mortality in acute pancreatitis. The differential diagnosis includes walled-off necrosis and sometimes a pseudoaneurysm or even a cystic tumor. There is a homogeneous well-demarcated peripancreatic collection in the lesser sac, which abuts the stomach and the pancreas. Clinical outcome Early severity stratification of acute pancreatitis is important to identify patients with the highest morbidity.

On the day of admission, scoring systems based on imaging do not outperform scoring systems based on clinical and biochemical parameters with regard to predicting clinical outcome.

The collection is homogeneous and well-demarcated with a thin wall abutting the stomach. Pancraetitis patients usually recover by the end of the first week.

Fifty per cent of the patients had acute severe pancreatitis according to the Atlanta criteria. For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.

Pseudocyst This patient presented with a gastric outlet obstruction 2 months after an episode of acute pancreatitis. Recently the hemo-concentration has been identified as a strong risk factor and an early marker for pancreattis pancreatitis and organ failure.

In table IIwe can observe the characteristics of the patients according to the severity markers. At this stage, it is not possible to distinguish between an acute peripancreatic fluid collection and acute necrotic collection. Most likely this is necrotic fat tissue i.
