Caption: Chronic pancreatitis. Coloured frontal X-ray of the abdomen of a 47-year-old patient with chronic pancreatitis. The spine runs down the centre. Small calcifications (white blobs at left of upper spine) can be seen in the pancreas, where mineral deposits have resulted from chronic pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas, an organ that produces digestive enzymes and the hormone insulin. The cause of chronic pancreatitis is not known, but it is linked to excess alcohol ingestion, chronic steroid use or chronic anti-inflammatory use. Treatment is of the underlying cause, if identified, and pain relief. Pancreatic enzymes can also be administered to prevent malabsorption of nutrients from food.
