Scrub typhus caused by organism Orientia tsutsugamushi and transmitted to humans by the bite of a leptotrombidium mite (chigger). Although eschar formation is one of the important signs that aid in diagnosis, multiple eschar formation is a rare presentation. Although scrub typhus causes multiple organ dysfunction, the pancreas involvement is rare. Here, we describe a patient with scrub typhus with multiple eschars complicated with acute pancreatitis and acute kidney injury.
