An elderly man with a longstanding history of hypertension on hydrochlorthiazide 25 mg and enalapril 5 mg once daily for the last seven years, presented with acute abdominal pain and diagnosed to have acute pancreatitis. Other causes of the disease were ruled out. After cessation of anti-hypertensive drugs (hydrochlorthiazide and enalapril) his condition improved and the amylase level normalized. He was started on amlodipine 10 mg/day. The patient was asymptomatic at follow-up examination and has not had another episode of pancreatitis during the subsequent six months.
