Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). We aimed in our study to explore the risk factors of AKI in patients with SAP and assess the prognosis of patients with SAP and AKI. This is a retrospective study consisting of analysis of outcome and complications encountered in 72 severe acute pancreatitis patients admitted to a tertiary care center at Indore, India, from May 2011 to April 2012. We encountered 14 AKI cases in the SAP study patients. There was a significant association of diabetes and alcohol with AKI in patients with SAP. Alcohol was found to be an independent significant risk factor for AKI in SAP. All the eight patients with SAP who expired had AKI. None of the patients of SAP without AKI expired during the study. We conclude that the patients with SAP with AKI have a greater mortality rate as compared with the SAP patients without AKI.
