A 35-year-old man developed two episodes of postoperative pancreatitis. The first one occurred after knee surgery and the second one 6 years after surgery for excision of haemorrhoids. Induction of anaesthesia associated propofol 200 mg and sufentanil 15 microg. Anaesthesia was maintained with sevoflurane administered through a laryngeal mask. The possible association between the drugs used during anaesthesia and the postoperative pancreatitis is discussed.
