Context Chronic asymptomatic pancreatic hyperenzymemia (CAPH) has been described since 1996 as a benign disease. Pathological findings at magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) with secretin stimulation (s-MRCP) have been found in 50% of CAPH subjects, but in 30% their clinical meaning remains undefined. Objective To investigate subjects with CAPH during the follow-up to assess the clinical and radiological outcome. Methods From January 2012 to March 2013, a cohort of 160 subjects pr...

Context Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is not common in elderly people. Idiopathic senile pancreatitis (SP) was described 30 years ago, occurring over 50s, but very little information was reported since that first reported so far. Painless course, steatorrhea or diabetes, and pancreatic calcification were the clinical features. Objective This study was aimed at identifying presence and characteristics of SP in patients with CP aged >65 years. Fifty patients out of a series of 620 CP (8.1%) were ident...

Background: The objectives of this study are to estimate prevalence and incidence of extrapancreatic malignancies (EPMs) among intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas, and to identify risk factors for their occurrence. Patients and methods: We conducted multicentric cohort study in Italy from January 2010 to January 2011 including 390 IPMN cases. EPMs were grouped as previous, synchronous (both prevalent) and metachronous (incident). We calculated the observed/expected (...

Abstract Description Diabetes and glucose intolerance are common complications of chronic pancreatitis, yet clinical guidance on their detection, classification, and management is lacking. Methods A working group reviewed the medical problems, diagnostic methods, and treatment options for chronic pancreatitis-associated diabetes for a consensus meeting at PancreasFest 2012 . Results Guidance Statement 1.1 : Diabetes mellitus is common in chronic pancreatitis. While any patient with chronic pancr...

Background: International consensus diagnostic criteria (ICDC) have been proposed to classify autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) in type 1, type 2, or not otherwise specified. Objective: Aim was to apply the ICDC to an Italian series of patients to evaluate the incidence and clinical profiles among different subtypes of AIP. Methods: we re-evaluated and classified 92 patients diagnosed by Verona criteria, according to the ICDC. Results: Out of 92 patients, 59 (64%) were diagnosed as type 1, 17 (18%) ...

s / Pancreatology 13 (2013) S2–S98 S10 sequenced using next generation sequencing (Illumina GAIIx) in 5 pancreatitis and 5 control patients, heterozygous for the p.N34S variant. Identified sequence variants were then filtered based on their increased frequency within chronic pancreatitis patients, revealing 7 haplotype segments. Seven variants (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms), one selected within each haplotype segment, were then screened in 38 pancreatitis patients and 20 controls (both groups...

Background and Aims: International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria (ICDC) for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have been proposed to identify type 1 AIP, type 2 AIP, and AIP-not otherwise specified (AIP-NOS). To date, no study on incidence, clinical profiles and outcome in the groups classified according to ICDC has been reported. The aim of this study was to apply these criteria to an Italian series of patients to evaluate the incidence, clinical profiles, and outcome among these subtypes of AIP. Pa...
