Sudden death in young individuals is relatively uncommon and acute haemorrhagic pancreatitis as a cause of sudden and unexpected death is a rare phenomenon. A case of sudden death due to acute haemorrhagic pancreatitis is reported in a young doctor who ignored the radiating pain of acute pancreatitis for gastritis, and resorted to self-medication. The condition was discovered only at autopsy.
