The association between acute pancreatitis and organophosphate (OP) poisoning may still not be widely recognized. A case of organophosphate (diazinon) poisoning presenting as acute pancreatitis is described. The diagnosis of OP was not made during admission to hospital as the history of exposure to OP was not obtained then. Obtaining the history of OP exposure is most important. Recognizing the OP poisoning can present as acute pancreatitis may be lift-saving in a critically ill patient.
