Abstract

Serum amylase and lipase frequently rise during bouts of acute pancreatitis, and measurement of these enzymes provides important diagnostic information. We report a pediatric patient with persistent elevations of serum lipase resulting from macrolipasemia, a complex of lipase with IgG, rather than pancreatitis.
