Background: Pancreolithiasis or pancreatic calculus is a rare case. Men suffer more than women with a ratio of 2-3:1 and have an incidence of 1-8:100.000. Pancretolithiasis itself is a sequela of chronic pancreatitis. Accompanied by non-specific complaints, epigastric abdominal pain that radiates to the back to the left shoulder and nausea, vomiting which causes weight loss and malnutrition. Radiological examination can help the clinician in. establish a diagnosis where the laboratory results are also not specific enough to diagnose chronic pancreatitis. The aim of this report is to determine the radiological features of pancreolithiasis accompanied by chronic pancreatitis.

In laboratory tests, an increase in total cholesterol, LDH and hyperkalemia was found. There is no increase in amylase and lipase and hepatic function. On plain abdominal radiograph, ultrasound and CT scan, it is found that there is a stone image accompanied by imaging of chronic pancreatitis.

Conclusion: Pancreatic calculus is a rare condition. More common in male gender, patients with pancreolithiasis have non-specific discharge.
