Objective: This paper aims to describe the presentation of acute pancreatitis secondary to acute mesenteric artery syndrome in a patient with major weight loss.

Method: We present a case report and briefly review the literature.

Results: A 16-year-old female patient with a recent history of weight loss presented with acute onset of vomiting and abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis secondary to superior mesenteric artery syndrome attributed to anatomical change caused by the loss of the fat pad between the mesenteric artery and the duodenum.

Conclusion: Acute pancreatitis can be caused by superior mesenteric artery syndrome in patients with weight loss. This paper can present clinical awareness and prompt early diagnosis in these patients.
