Hypertriglyceridemia-induced pancreatitis is a rare, but serious, complication of pregnancy. We report a case of acute pancreatitis associated with type V hyperlipoproteinemia in pregnancy. A 36-year- old primigravida was admitted at 16 weeks of gestation with severe abdominal pain. Chemical analysis showed high serum pancreatic enzymes and very high serum triglyceride. Abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed diffuse swelling of the pancreas and a peripancreatic fluid collection. A diagnosis of acute pancreatitis with type V hyperlipoproteinemia was made. She recovered from the acute pancreatitis with conservative management and the serum triglyceride decreased rapidly with dietary restriction of fat, insulin/glucose, fenofibrate, and omega-3. We review the management of hypertriglyceridemia-induced acute pancreatitis in pregnancy. (Korean J Med 77:104-108, 2009)
