Four patients with acute pancreatitis presenting with Grey Turner's sign or Cullen's sign have been studied by computed tomography (CT). These observations help confirm the precise anatomic pathways by which the extravasated pancreatic enzymes and their effects lead to these cutaneous discolorations.

Subcutaneous manifestations (Grey Turner's sign and Cullen's sign) of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) are often discussed but rarely observed in a daily clinic setting. This paper will demonstrate the anatomic pathways followed by the extravasated pancreatic enzymes and how their effects lead to these ecchymoses by multiplanar reformation (MPR) images obtained by helical computed tomography (hCT). A 34-year-old female was admitted with SAP. Read More
