Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a rarely encountered complication in patients following kidney transplantation and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis is often difficult due to the lack of classic symptoms and laboratory findings. Herein, we report the case of azathioprine-induced AP leading to acute kidney injury in a kidney transplant recipient, in whom we have encountered diagnostic difficulty. Patient spontaneously recovered after drug withdrawal. We propose a step-wise diagnostic algorithm for the evaluation of AP in kidney transplant recipients.
