Abstract: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an acute inflammatory process of the pancreas. The purpose of our work is to test the reliability of the SIRS score in assessing the severity of the AP in our context. Based on the analysis of our results, this score is strongly correlated with the occurrence of complications during the AP especially the infection of the necrosis flows especially if the SIRS persists beyond 48h. This is consistent with the new international recommendations for the use of this score in assessing the severity of the AP and predicting its evolution.
