part from pulmonary manifestations, there is an increased incidence of pancreatic involvement and acute pancreatitis (AP) reported in COVID-19 patients. In January 2021, a PubMed search using the terms "Acute Pancreatitis, COVID-19" yielded a result including 94 studies. Most of the studies refer to isolated cases or limited series, with the added difficulty that some authors have considered AP as elevated lipase and/or amylase levels without the diagnostic criteria for AP being met, as highlighted by Chivato et al. in relation to the case they report. Pancreatic involvement has been reported in 17 % of COVID-19 patients and AP in 1.8-2.0 % of these patients.
