Özet

Background: While elevated serum amylase in the presence of abdominal pain can be indicative of pancreatitis, differential diagnosis of macroamylasemia depends on additional assessment of serum lipase and urinary amylase. The present report concerns misdiagnosis of pancreatitis in a pregnant woman with elevated serum amylase but normal lipase.
