Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a peculiar form of chronic inflammatory disease of the pancreas with unique pathologic features, different from all other forms of pancreatitis. Although a possible autoimmune involvement of the pancreatic gland had been proposed since the early 1960s, the term AIP was introduced in 1995 by Yoshida et al. based on a case report and the review of the available English and Japanese literature. However only in recent years was AIP finally accepted as a distinct noso...

Solid pseudopapillary tumors (SPT) of the pancreas are rare neoplasms mainly affecting young women. Pancreatic serous cystadenomas (SCAs) and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) account for about 2% of all pancreatic neoplasms. The combination of these three lesions, to our knowledge, has never been described in literature. Here we report a case of combined SPT, SCA and PanNET affecting a 33-year-old woman.

Objectives Several serological markers have been reported in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) patients. However, only serum IgG4 (sIgG4) is available in clinical practice for AIP diagnosis. Antiamylase α antibodies (AMY-α Abs) have been proposed to diagnose AIP. This study evaluates the utility of AMY-α Abs and sIgG4 for AIP diagnosis. Methods Twenty-five AIP patients, 84 disease control groups (31 chronic pancreatitis, 30 acute pancreatitis, 23 pancreatic adenocarcinoma), and 59 healthy donors wer...
