Abstract: Hypertriglyceridemia is an important and under-diagnosed etiology of acute non-biliary pancreatitis. There has been no standardized protocol to treat these patients. Our patient is a case of an uncontrolled diabetes mellitus using oral antidiabetic and fenofibrate with a history of dyslipidemia and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patient was performed a treatment protocol consisting a combination of insulin and heparin for to stimulate lipoprotein-lipase activity. All the values of the patient recovered at the end of the treatment. Our goal is to present a case of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypertriglyceridemia, differential diagnosis and treatment approach.
