We report here the case of a 32-year-old male with recent diagnosis of HIV that, 45 days after starting a single tablet regimen co-formulated with bictegravir, emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide (BIC/FTC/TAF), experienced severe epigastric pain radiating to the back, nausea, episodes of non-bloody non-bilious vomiting and anorexia. Laboratory examination showed a rise in lipase with no alterations in serum transaminases. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a non-homogeneous structure of the pancreatic parenchyma. A diagnosis of mild drug-related acute pancreatitis was made and BIC/FTC/TAF was immediately stopped. The association between the episode of acute pancreatitis and BIC/FTC/TAF was scored as probable according to the Naranjo causality scale.

Abstract

We report here the case of a 32-year-old male with recent diagnosis of HIV that, 45 days after starting a single tablet regimen co-formulated with bictegravir, emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide (BIC/FTC/TAF), experienced severe epigastric pain radiating to the back, nausea, episodes of non-bloody non-bilious vomiting and anorexia. Laboratory examination showed a rise in lipase with no alterations in serum transaminases. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a non-homogeneous structure of the pancreatic parenchyma. A diagnosis of mild drug-related acute pancreatitis was made and BIC/FTC/TAF was immediately stopped. The association between the episode of acute pancreatitis and BIC/FTC/TAF was scored as probable according to the Naranjo causality scale.
