In brief: Pancreatitis

Inlammation of the pancreas, pancreatitis, is most commonly caused by a gallstone blocking the entrance of the pancreatic duct into the intestine, or alcoholism.
Less common causes include side-effects of certain drugs, very high triglyceride levels, and anatomical abnormalities of the pancreas.
