Acute pancreatitis is a sudden swelling and inflammation of the pancreas. The two most common causes are alcohol use and biliary stones. Drug-induced acute pancreatitis are rare (1.4-2%). In this present study, we present a case of recurrent acute pancreatitis induced by a specific magnetic-resonance-imaging (MRI) contrast agent called gadobenate dimeglumine. © 2012 IAP and EPC.

Objectives: There is little information about the impact of hyperglycaemia in twin pregnancies. The objective of our study was to evaluate the maternal, foetal and neonatal complications in patients with twin pregnancy and glucose intolerance defined by gestational diabetes mellitus and gestational mild hyperglycaemia. Study design: We performed a single-centre retrospective study. Screening for gestational diabetes was achieved by a two-step method. Patients were managed according to the French guidelines. After matching for age and body mass index, outcomes were compared in 177 patients with glucose intolerance and 509 controls. Macrosomia was defined as birth weight above the 90th percentile of gestational age adjusted for parity, foetal sex and maternal biometrics. Results: Prevalence of glucose intolerance was 17.5% in our population. Complications of pregnancy and mode of delivery were similar between the two groups. Caesarean section was associated with age. >. 35. years, vascular complications of pregnancy and non-cephalic presentation of the first twin. Rate of macrosomia was not different between the two groups. The only risk factor for macrosomia was a history of macrosomia in a previous pregnancy (odds ratio. =. 5.9, 95% confidence interval. =. 1.8-19.2). Conclusion: Twin pregnancies complicated by glucose intolerance were not associated with an increased risk of macrosomia or Caesarean section. Further studies should assess the value of screening gestational diabetes mellitus in twin pregnancies. © 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS.
