Abstract

Context: Chronic pancreatitis is a pancreatic disorder affecting endocrine and exocrine pancreatic functions with a variety of mainly abdominal symptoms. Case report: We report the rare complication of acute retinopathy with visual loss following pancreatic head resection due to chronic pancreatitis. Conclusions: Acute retinal dysfunction is a rare severe complication of acute and chronic pancreatitis. Early recognition and therapy are of utmost importance in restoring normal visual acuity and avoiding irreversible damage.
