Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) infection, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, is primarily a respiratory illness. The sequelae have been observed affecting multiple organ systems, adding to the morbidity and mortality of the disease. It has also been shown to have adverse effects on lipid profile in some case studies. Acute pancreatitis (AP) post-COVID-19 infection has been described previously. Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is a well-described cause of AP. Here, we report patients presenting with post-COVID-19 infection with HTG causing AP.
