No relationship wasfound between age, C-reactive proteins, amylase andliver enzymes, pancreatitis etiology, complications seenafter surgery and mortality (p>0.05). The effects of whiteblood cell values, width of necrosis area and the APACHEII and Ranson values upon admission on mortality weresignificant (p
