Özet

Acute pancreatitis may be caused by drugs. In the literature, there are more than 260 different drugs that have been blamed for causing pancreatitis. Among these drugs, only 1 case has been reported as clomiphene-induced acute pancreatitis. However, in this single case, there was concomitant hypertrigliceridemia. We report the case of a woman who developed 2 attacks of acute pancreatitis without hypertriglyceridemia while receiving treatment with clomiphene.
