Moringa oleifera (Moringa) induced acute pancreatitis is an unreported cause of acute pancreatitis. A 48-year-old female who took Moringa for one week complained of abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Her symptoms and biochemical studies showed close accordance with acute pancreatitis. We found no other cause of acute pancreatitis except Moringa. After cessation of Moringa, her symptoms improved and biochemical studies normalized. One month later, she developed recurrent acute pancreatitis after taking Moringa. Thus we thought that Moringa was the cause of acute pancreatitis. No case of acute pancreatitis associated with Moringa has been reported, therefore we report this case.
Key words: Pancreatitis, Moringa oleifera, Adverse effects
