Three cases of chronic pancreatitis occurring in patients with small intestinal diverticulosis and bacterial overgrowth are reported. In two of the cases, pancreatic supplements were therapeutically beneficial (the third being unable to tolerate them). Two of the patients also developed diverticular perforation.
