Authors: Ćeranić DB, Zorman M, Skok P Abstract Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a disease with significant morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic role of inflammatory markers, particularly interleukins (ILs), in the course of AP and to determine the frequency of etiologic factors of AP.
