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...

Autoimmune pancreatitis is a rare form of chronic pancreatitis. The first descriptions of the disease date back to the 1990s. Etiology is multifactorial, with the use of genetic, environmental and complex immunological mechanisms. It is classified into two subtypes. Type 1 is part of a group of diseases called IgG4-related disease. Clinically is autoimmune pancreatitis manifested by icterus and abdominal discomfort. It can rarely present as acute pancreatitis. There is also a completely asymptom...

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...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), a unique subtype of pancreatitis, is often accompanied by systemic inflammatory disorders. AIP is classified into two distinct subtypes on the basis of the histological subtype: immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis (type 1) and idiopathic duct-centric pancreatitis (type 2). Type 1 AIP is often accompanied by systemic lesions, biliary strictures, hepatic inflammatory pseudotumors, interstitial pneumonia and nephritis, dacryoaden...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is an entity that has been recognized since 1961. Prior to the discovery of elevated serum IgG4 as a useful biomarker for its diagnosis, Dr. Yoshida in 1995 first described the entity of AIP, which in retrospect closely resembles the current concept of type 1 AIP. Since the discovery of IgG4 as a biomarker (the IgG4-era), a novel concept of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) has been accepted as being comprised of two subtypes of AIP: type 1 defined as the pancreatic ma...

Background:Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) encompasses a heterogenous disease group that includes IgG4-related type 1 AIP and non–IgG4-related type 2 AIP. Clinically and on imaging, type 2 AIP mimics type 1 AIP, other forms of chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC); therefore

Background & Aims Risk for relapse after induction of remission with steroid therapy has been studied extensively in patients with autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), but findings have been equivocal. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the relapse rate of AIP after initial remission after steroid treatment and to identify factors associated with relapse. Methods Three reviewers searched MEDLINE, SCOPUS, and EMBASE until July 2018 to identify studies on rate of relapse of A...
