IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-RC) is a clinical condition described in the last 10 years, according to the growing knowledge on IgG4-related diseases (IgG4-RD). In Europe, few studies have been published on IgG4-RC and the information available are mainly derived from patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). The chapter report the knowledge about the disease in Europe, and diagnostic algorytm and therapy currently applied for this rare but challenging disease.

Aims: Endosonography (EUS) is one of the main diagnostic tools for the differential diagnosis of pancreatic masses. The aim of our study was to describe the value of this technique in the work-up of solid pancreatic lesions, considering the influence of the morphological evidence of pancreatic inflammation in the diagnostic process. Material and methods: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data in our tertiary University center. From March 2007 to October 2015, 218 patients underwe...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The advent of cell therapies, mainly based on the use of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs), represents a great step forward in the treatment of immune-mediated conditions. Here, we focus on those intestinal disorders wherein MSCs have been applied for immunotherapeutic purposes and whose results are available. RECENT FINDINGS: By virtue of their ability to favour both tissue regeneration and immune tolerance, together with a substantial lack of immunogenicity, MSCs have gained ...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate magnetic resonance imaging findings of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) and to find radiological patterns that could differentiate type 1 and type 2 AIP. METHODS: Eighty-four patients with diagnosis of AIP were enrolled. Image analysis included pancreatic signal intensity abnormalities, enhancement pattern, extrapancreatic involvement, and main pancreatic duct alterations. RESULTS: Pancreatic parenchyma resulted in hypointensity on T1-weighted images in 65 (...

Purpose of review Clinical management of autoimmune pancreatitis changed over the last years. The lack of high-quality studies, probably due to the relative rarity of the disease, has not fully clarified many diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Aim of this review is to overview the literature from a clinical point of view, focusing on diagnostic and therapeutic approach to this complicated disease. Recent findings They have been focused mainly on the risk of misdiagnosing a cancer. Many signific...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare disorder whose association with coeliac disease (CD) has never been investigated, although CD patients display a high prevalence of both endocrine and exocrine pancreatic affections. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the frequency of CD in patients with AIP and in further medical pancreatic disorders. The screening for CD was carried out through the detection of tissue transglutaminase (tTG) autoantibodies in sera of patients retrospectively enrolled and di...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Autoimmune Pancreatitis (AIP) is a peculiar form of pancreatitis different from all other type of pancreatitis (‘one like no one pancreatitis’) and characterized by a dramatic response to steroids. AIP can be classified histologically in type 1, included in a larger group of diseases named IgG4-related disease, and type 2. At imaging, AIP may involve all (diffuse form) or only a part (focal form) of the pancreatic gland.Areas covered: In this article, the clinical approach ...

Celiac disease (CD), the most common chronic enteropathy worldwide, is triggered and sustained by a dysregulated immune response to dietary gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. Up to date either the role of environmental factors and the pathways leading to mucosal damage have been only partially unravelled. Therefore, we seized the unique opportunity to study a naturally-occurring experimental model of a family composed of both parents suffering from CD (one on a gluten-free diet) and ...
