Haemorrhage is well recognised as a serious complication of acute pancreatitis. However, its occurrence has not been reported previously in the absence of another major complication such as necrotising pancreatitis, pancreatic pseudocyst or abscess formation. A case is reported in which exsanguinating haemorrhage occurred 12 days after the onset of acute pancreatitis, when the acute pancreatitis had almost resolved.
