OBJECTIVES: A nationwide survey was conducted to clarify the epidemiological features of patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) in Japan. METHODS: In the first survey, both the prevalence and the incidence of CP in 2011 were estimated. In the second survey, the clinicoepidemiological features of the patients were clarified by mailed questionnaires. Patients were diagnosed by the Japanese diagnostic criteria for chronic pancreatitis 2009. RESULTS: The estimated annual prevalence and incidence of CP in 2011 were 52...

Atsushi Tanaka, Hajime Takikawa
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic cholestatic liver disease of unknown origin, characterized by progressive destruction of bile ducts caused by diffuse inflammation and fibrosis. Previous epidemiological studies in Northern Europe and North America demonstrated that incidence and prevalence rates are ranging from 0.5 to 1.3 and from 3.85 to 16.2 per 100,000 inhabitants per year, respectively. It is of note that the incidence of PSC appears to be gradually increasing. We have extensively reviewed the geoepidemiology of PSC and attempted to place it in context with the incidence in Japan...

OBJECTIVES: A nationwide survey was conducted to clarify the epidemiological features of patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) in Japan. METHODS: Two sequential surveys were conducted. In the first survey, both the prevalence and incidence of CP in Japan in 2007 were estimated by a questionnaire, which was mailed to 3027 randomly chosen Japanese facilities. In the second survey, the second questionnaire was then mailed to 1110 facilities selected by the first survey to clarify the clinicoepidemiological features of the patients...

OBJECTIVES: A nationwide epidemiological survey was conducted to estimate the number of patients treated for acute pancreatitis (AP) in 2007 in Japan and to clarify the clinicoepidemiological features of AP. METHODS: In the first survey, a simple questionnaire was used to inquire about the number of patients with AP who visited the hospital in the year 2007. This questionnaire was directly mailed to the heads of 3027 facilities. The second questionnaire was forwarded to those facilities from which patients with AP were reported on the first questionnaire...

REVIEW
Makoto Otsuki
Chronic pancreatitis is a chronic clinical disorder characterized by irreversible damage to the pancreas and the development of histologic evidence of inflammation and fibrosis, and eventually the destruction and permanent loss of exocrine and endocrine tissue. A nationwide survey in Japan revealed an increase in the total number of patients treated for chronic pancreatitis from 32 000 in 1994 to 42 000 in 1999. The overall prevalence and the incidence rate of chronic pancreatitis also increased, from 28.5 and 5...

The aim of this study was to estimate the number of patients treated for chronic pancreatitis in 1994 in Japan and to explore the clinico-epidemiological features of chronic pancreatitis. Two surveys were conducted. Stratified random sampling was used to select departments in which patients with chronic pancreatitis were treated, and two different questionnaires were administered to obtain relevant information. From the first survey, the total number of patients treated for chronic pancreatitis in Japan in the year 1994 was estimated as 32,000 (95% confidence interval, 25,000-39,000)...
