Although acute pancreatitis is a common disease some of its causes are quite rare such as ischemia of the pancreas. One of the causes of pancreatic ischemia is atheromatous embolization of the pancreatic vessels during angiographic procedures either for diagnosis or for treatment. We present the case of a male patient who suffered acute pancreatitis of pancreatic ischemia origin due to atheromatous embolization of the pancreas during percutaneous transcatheter coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of the left coronary artery. Key words: Acute pancreatitis, angiography, cardiac catheterization (EN)
