The subject of my lecture requires better definition: I shall talk about pancreatitis and, chiefly, about the diagnosis of the recurrent variety of pancreatitis. How can we recognize the pain of this disease? This pain does tend to be in the upper abdomen, more often on the left than the right, and radiates to the back in about a quarter of the cases. It has, however, no characteristic quality, and the degree of the pain may range from the relatively painless to the excruciating. Most often, its severity is between these two extremes.
