Abstract

Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a serious condition with a great impact on the quality of life, and it can lead to some serious long-term consequences such as pancreatic cancer or secondary diabetes mellitus. Associated pancreatic exocrine insufficiency leads to malnutrition with weight loss; however, the main symptom of the disease is abdominal pain, often very severe. The primary treatment option for painful CP is pharmacotherapy (pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy, analgesics). If this is not effective, CP can be treated via endoscopy, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), their combination, or surgery. We present a case of painful chronic obstructive pancreatitis in a patient successfully treated with ESWL in combination with endoscopy.
