A case is reported of pancreatic carcinoma recognized four years after bile peritonitis complicated cholecystectomy. The patient possessed all the known significant risk factors associated with pancreatic carcinoma. The wider recognition of risk factors for pancreatic adenocarcinoma might lead to closer follow-up of patients with multiple factors and possibly earlier diagnosis and treatment leading to increased survival in patients with the disease.
