Drug-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) is rare, but as there are no systematic data on it, the true incidence is not known. This case report is a first description of two episodes of AP occurring after administration and subsequent re-administration of mefenamic acid to a young woman without comorbidities. Other common causes of AP could be ruled out. With both episodes, the latency of AP was less than 24 h after drug intake. Mefenamic acid should be considered as a possible cause of drug-induced AP.
