Description Background: A spontaneous inflammation of the pancreas is acute pancreatitis that may be mild or life-threating. It is a highly common disease that poses a huge surgical risk to surgeons globally. The objective is to research was undertaken to compare the Ranson and BISAP scores     for predicting the severity of acute pancreatitis. Design:This was a hospital based prospective study. Participants: 100 patients both males & females with acute pancreatitis. Subjects and Methods: Patients having history of inflammation and clinical findings of acute pancreatitis and presence of large oedema pancreas in the abdomen identified via USG or CT. The BISAP and Ranson scores were used to predict severity. Results: In this study, acute pancreatitis was 10 times higher in men than women. The average age was 41.18. In this study, the average age of non-survivors was 60, relative to 41.23 years of survivors. In this study, alcohol was the most common etiological factor (59 percent). Conclusion: In patients with acute pancreatitis BISAP findings are also useful in assessing the risk of serious and predictive mortality as in Ranson’s score.
