INTRODUCTION: Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is rare of acute pancreatitis (AP). Multiple studies on hypertriglyceridemic pancreatitis (HTP) management have evaluated the use of insulin, heparin, or both. Some series have also reported use of plasmapheresis to reduce triglyceride (TG) levels and halt the progression of HTP. However, no management guidelines are available. We present a case of severe complicated HTP required plasmapheresis to reduce TG level rapidly.
