Abdominal pain, frequent in patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP), has a negative impact on quality of life (QOL). Psychiatric comorbidities including anxiety and depression are associated with pain, but their prevalence and effects on QOL in CP have not been quantified. We studied the prevalence of anxiety and depression in patients with CP and their associated patient and disease characteristics and impact on QOL.
