Density of liver is low due to fatty liver. Delayed excretion of contrast from kidneys is seen. Bilaterally pleural and pericardial effusion are also noted .
These findings are consistent necrotising pancreatitis.
Gas also is noted at the non enhancing section of pancreas in favour of infected necrosis. Delayed excretion of contrast from kidneys probably is secondary to nephropathy due to severe pancreatitis .
