Introduction: Severe upper abdominal pain is one of the symptoms of acute Pancreatitis that often appears in other diseases such as peptic ulcer, acute hepatitis, cholangitis, and cholecystitis. Acute gallstone-induced Pancreatitis has considerable morbidity and mortality. A good anamnesis and physical examination can help establish a more precise diagnosis and management.

Case: A 50-year-old male came to the emergency room with a significant complaint of severe abdominal pain in the right upper abdomen for three days that was getting worse. VAS score 8-9. The history of the disease is previously unknown. Blood pressure when coming 141/102 mmHg, pulse 98 x/ min, temperature 36.4ºC. Abdominal CT scan results obtained the results of images of Pancreatitis and multiple stones in the cystic duct. Serum amylase and lipase results were very high at 1897 U/L and > 3000 U/L. Patients were then referred to the digestive surgery department on the 2nd day of treatment for further treatment.

Discussion: Acute pancreatitis caused by gallstones is usually caused because stones get stuck in the branching of the pancreatic duct. Obstruction at the site causes bile reflux into the pancreatic duct. Small gallstones increase the risk of Pancreatitis because they move quickly between the bile ducts. In this patient, it is suspected to have had a previously unknown history of DM, which is one of the causes of worsening the condition.

Conclusion: Early diagnosis enforcement is essential in acute pancreatitis cases because it will affect patients' initial management of emergencies. Initial management includes fluid resuscitation and detection of local and systemic complications, and decision-making for procedural intervention measures.
