AbstractForty-seven patients aged more than 75 years with acute pancreatitis were studied. The most common cause of acute pancreatitis was biliary tract stones. The clinical presentation and severity of the disease as judged by the number of poor prognostic factors were not different from the group of patients aged less than 75 years. The mortality rate in the older group was thrice that of the younger group (21.3% versus 7.24%). The higher mortality rate was explained by a higher incidence of deaths related to complications of biliary stones and coincidental diseases. Significantly more aged patients with mild disease died, indicating the limitation of predictive ability of the scoring system in acute pancreatitis of the aged.
