Background Several years have passed since the clinical diagnostic criteria for IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis 2012 were published. New findings and knowledge have accumulated since then. Methods The Research Committees for IgG4-related Diseases and for Intractable Diseases of the Liver and Biliary Tract in association with the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan and the Japan Biliary Association, have established a working group consisting of researchers specializing in IgG4-SC ...

Abstract Background The clinical characteristics of IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) especially without autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have not been investigated in a large cohort. Aims To clarify the clinical characteristics of IgG4-SC and IgG4-SC without AIP. Methods We retrospectively reviewed imaging, serology, other organ involvement (OOI) and histology of 872 patients with IgG4-SC who participated in a Japanese nationwide survey in 2019, and compared these items between IgG4-SC...

The biopsy-based diagnosis of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is difficult but is becoming imperative for pathologists due to the increased amount of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biopsy tissue. To cope with this challenge, we propose guidance for the biopsy diagnosis of type 1 AIP. This guidance is for pathologists and comprises three main parts. The first part includes basic issues on tissue acquisition, staining, and final diagnosis, and is intended for gastroenterologists as well. The second pa...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Epidemiological data on immunoglobulin G4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) are scarce. METHOD We randomly selected healthcare facilities from a list of all facilities in Japan. The selection rate was determined according to a stratification based on the facility characteristics and scale. We sent questionnaires to the selected facilities enquiring about the number and sex of patients with IgG4-SC in 2018. Among responding facilities, we further inquired about the clini...

Abstract Background/objectives Patients with autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) sometimes progress to chronic pancreatitis (CP). We evaluated the ability of corticosteroids to prevent the progression to CP. Methods We defined patients with definitive findings of CP (stones in the main pancreatic duct [MPD] or multiple pancreatic calcifications) as having severe calcification (SC). A total of 145 AIP patients were enrolled. We measured the duration between AIP diagnosis and SC development and retrospe...

Abstract Objectives We examined the efficacy and limitations of acquiring large specimens by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) for diagnosing type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). Methods Patients from 12 institutions with non-neoplastic diseases or pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) with large EUS-FNB specimens were investigated. Slides stained with hematoxylin-eosin, elastic, IgG4, and IgG stains were evaluated. The IgG4-and IgG-positive cell numbers were counted i...
