      Acute pancreatitis (AP) is the reversible inflammation of pancreas. Annually from 4.9 to 35 cases per 100,000 of AP is reported. About one-fourth of patients with AP, develop severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) which may lead to a life-threatening complications and mortality rate is reported up to 5% [
