s / Pancreatology 15 (2015) S1eS141 S71 patients underwent resective surgery for complications of pancreatitis; none had developed pancreatic cancer. 3 patients died, one from metastatic oral cavity cancer, one frommetastatic malignantmelanoma and one from oesophagus cancer. Conclusion: In clinical follow up of patients with hereditary pancreatitis pancreatic cancer development is rare. Neither is the presence of pancreatic duct stenosis on ERCP a reliable positive predictor for pancreatic cance...

Abstract Background Characteristics of type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is granulocyte epithelial lesions, called idiopathic duct-centric pancreatitis (IDCP). To clarify pathogenesis of IDCP, we investigated mechanism of neutrophil infiltration in type 1 AIP, called lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis (LPSP) and IDCP. Method This study was performed on resected pancreata from patients with alcoholic chronic pancreatitis (ACP, n = 10), LPSP (n = 10) and IDCP (n = 12). The number of neut...

OBJECTIVES:Steroids are used to induce remission in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). Low-dosage steroid therapy or immunosuppressant (IMs) has been proposed as maintenance therapy to prevent AIP relapse. Few and conflicting data have been published on the efficacy of azathioprine (AZA) in preventing A

The recognition of pancreatic cysts and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (IPMN) has increased largely secondary to greater utilization of high-quality cross-sectional abdominal imaging.1, 2 Although the general characteristics of IPMNs, radiographic diagnosis, cyst fluid composition, and their delineation from other pancreatic tumors have been well established, several issues regarding their growth and progression into malignancy remain poorly described. The degree of neo...

ObjectivesA diagnosis of benign lesions (BLs) is reported in 5% to 21% of pancreatoduodenectomies performed for neoplasms; no data for body-tail resections are available. The aims were to investigate the frequency and characterize the BLs mimicking cancer in the head and the body-tail of the pancrea

The objective of this study was to compare the preoperative diagnosis by International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria (ICDC) with histological diagnosis in patients with focal autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) who underwent surgery.Thirty patients (type 1 AIP in 23 and type 2 AIP in 7) with a diagnosis of AIP based on histology of surgical specimens were classified according to ICDC based on their preoperative data.Pancreatic core biopsies and diagnostic steroid trial were not preoperatively performe...
