Pancreatitis in Natal. An autopsy study.


A retrospective study of autopsy material at King Edward VIII Hospital, Durban, has revealed a 9-fold increase in the incidence of pancreatitis during the past 25 years in Black South Africans. It is suggested that this is the result of changes in drinking habits brought about by the general availability of all forms of alcohol, especially liquor with a high alcoholic content.
