The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has generated a worldwide sanitary emergency, forcing the worldwide scientific community to recommend low-evidence-based therapies. These drugs may have been involved with unsuspected side effects. We describe a case of a Primary Aortoenteric Fistula (PAEF) in a patient with a recent history of severe COVID-19, and we hypothesize whether this rare condition may have been triggered by the virus or by the drugs used against it.

Chronic pancreatitis is associated with impaired quality of life, high incidence of comorbidities, serious complications and mortality. Healthcare costs are exorbitant. Some medical societies have developed guidelines for treatment based on scientific evidence, but the gathered level of evidence for any individual topic is usually low and, therefore, recommendations tend to be vague or weak. In the present position papers on chronic pancreatitis from the Societat Catalana de Digestologia and the...
