Abnormalities in the left urinary tract have been observed secondary to pancreatopathies. Venous connections between the distal spenopancreatic venous bed and the left adrenal-renal venous system have been demonstrated by cast corrosion technique and by radiographic studies in the cadaver. In all of our anatomic studies, except on one occasion, numerous venous connections between the portal and systemic veins were demonstrated. The intravenous pyelogram and particularly nephrotomography have great value when pathology of the body and/or tail of the pancreas is suspected. Indirect sign on the left renal vein thrombosis on the left side may suggest the presence of a pancreatopathy. With acute and chronic pancreatitis, pseudocyst of the pancreas, and pancreatic carcinomas, we have noticed changes in the left urinary tract.
