Hyperamylasemia with Normal Pancreas in Leptospirosis
Abstract Serum α-amylase has been the most widely used laboratory test to diagnose acute pancreatitis. Serum amylase can be raised in many conditions including acute pancreatitis, other pancreatic diseases and non-pancreatic diseases. In addition, serum amylase not necessarily increased in acute pancreatitis. These two cases illustrate, a rare condition in which hyperamylasemia was noted in a case of leptospirosis in the abscence of pancreatic involvement. The initial clinical diagnosis in these patients were acute pancreatitis.
