Pancreatitis is a severe inflammatory pancreatic disease commonly due to bile duct stones or excessive alcohol usage, with clinical manifestations of abdominal pain, nausea, fever, and fluid collections. Healthy persons with less symptomatic pancreatitis are quite rare. Herein, we report a case of a patient with an undetermined onset of pancreatitis mimicking left arm cellulitis due to thrombotic vasculitis of the brachiocephalic vein.
