OBJECTIVES Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a manifestation of immunoglobulin G4-related diseases (IgG4-RD). To evaluate the activity of the disease, the IgG4-RD responder index (RI) has been created. This study evaluated the IgG4-RD RI as prognostic factor of 1-year disease relapse. METHODS Patients diagnosed with type 1 AIP between January 2012 and December 2016, with available magnetic resonance imaging and IgG4 dosage, were enrolled. Immunoglobulin G4-RD RI was calculated at baseline ...

Abstract Background Painless chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a rare form of the disease. Aim To evaluate the prevalence and the characteristics of this overlooked form of pancreatitis. Methods Patients with a diagnosis of CP and absence of pain were selected, excluding patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis. Clinical data, imaging features, and exocrine and endocrine function were therefore analyzed. Results Among 781 patients observed between 2010 and 2016, 74 patients with painless CP (9...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Very few data have been published on this particular subtype, which differs from the 'classical' IgG4-related type 1 AIP in terms of pathological features, epidemiology and risk of relapse. The aim of the current review is to summarize the available literature, suggesting a diagnostic and therapeutic approach to this disease. RECENT FINDINGS Based on the International Consensus Diagnostic Crite...

The correct identification of etiology in patients with acute pancreatitis is crucial for the outcome of the patient in clinical practice. Biliary acute pancreatitis is the predominant form of the disease, and it is characterized by a transient elevation of transaminases. Other etiologies, such as alcohol consumption, hypertriglyceridemia, drugs, parenchymal, and ductal abnormalities/lesions, need to be excluded in patients with normal transminases before considering the acute pancreatitis as id...

Abstract Background Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a well-recognized fibroinflammatory disease of the pancreas. Despite the significant number of studies published on AIP type 1 and 2, no studies have been focused on AIP type not otherwise specified (NOS) and therefore very little is known about clinical features and long-term outcomes of these patients. The aim of this study was to investigate clinical and radiological features of AIP type NOS-patients. Methods Patients classified as AIP type...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic asymptomatic pancreatic hyperenzymemia (CAPH) was described as a benign disease. However, we already described clinically relevant findings requiring surgery or follow-up in half of the subjects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of CAPH in terms of symptoms and evolution toward chronic pancreatitis. METHODS: Subjects previously enrolled in the first phase of the study (from 2005 to 2010) were reinvestigated from December 2013 to January 2017 with a ...

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.
