Abstract

Abdominal pain is a frequent manifestation in patients presenting with Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually it is attributed to severe metabolic acidosis but it can be due to underlying abdominal pathologies (i.e., pancreatitis, appendicitis). We report a case of a 19-year-old female who presented with DKA and severe abdominal pain and was found on further examination to have underlying pancreatitis and visceral vein thrombosis. The patient improved with treatment for the mentioned co-morbidities, including anticoagulation.
