Chronic pancreatitis is defined as a pathological fibro-inflammatory syndrome of the pancreas in individuals with genetic, environmental and/or other risk factors who develop persistent pathological responses to parenchymal injury or stress. Potential causes can include toxic factors (such as alcohol or smoking), metabolic abnormalities, idiopathic mechanisms, genetics, autoimmune responses and obstructive mechanisms. The pathophysiology of chronic pancreatitis is fairly complex and includes acinar cell injury, acinar stress responses, duct dysfunction, persistent or altered inflammation, and/or neuro-immune crosstalk, but these mechanisms are not completely understood...

OBJECTIVES: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a common complication of chronic pancreatitis (CP). Past studies for DM risk factors in CP have been limited to single centers or highly focused on a single etiology such as alcoholic or hereditary disease. We studied risk factors for DM in a large population of patients with CP of all etiologies enrolled in the North American Pancreatitis 2 studies. METHODS: Participants (1,171) with CP (n=383 with DM, n=788 without DM) were enrolled prospectively from 26 participating centers...

Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive fibro-inflammatory disease of the pancreas characterized by irreversible fibrosis of the gland with eventual failure of exocrine and endocrine functions and hallmark features of abdominal pain, malabsorption, malnutrition, diabetes mellitus and pancreatic calcifications. In many patients this disease results from a complex mix of environmental (eg, alcohol, cigarettes, and occupational chemicals), genetic factors and a few patients with hereditary or autoimmune disease...

Abdominal pain, one of the major symptoms of chronic pancreatitis, is believed to be caused by obstruction of the pancreatic duct system by stones or strictures. This results in increased intraductal pressure and parenchymal ischemia. Surgical decompression of the duct and ductal drainage can achieve best pain relieve and slow the progression of the disease. We want to share our experience of surgical drainage of pancreatic duct in chronic pancreatitis in our hospital. We studied 20 cases operated in our hospital between January 2010 and October 2015...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare form of chronic pancreatitis, classified into 2 subtypes - AIP type 1 and AIP type 2. We present a case of a 31-years-old female admitted to our institution with upper abdominal pain and obstructive jaundice. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatoscopy (ERCP) revealed stenosis of intrapancreatic distal bile duct. Diffuse parenchymal enlargement and typical features of AIP were shown by computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS). The patient´s serum IgG4 was elevated at 3...

Acute obstructive suppurative pancreatic ductitis (AOSPD) is a rare complication of chronic pancreatitis that has been described in only seven previous case reports since 1995. We report a case of a 33-year-old female a known case of chronic pancreatitis with computed tomography suggestive of dilated main pancreatic duct with multiple calcifications. On exploration, pancreatic duct aspiration revealed frank pus. Pus was drained after opening the pancreatic duct and longitudinal pancreaticojejunostomy was done...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to review a spectrum of calcified pancreatic masses and propose an algorithm for diagnostic radiologic evaluation. CONCLUSION: Pancreatic calcifications are being detected more frequently because of the widespread use of imaging, particularly CT. Pancreatic calcifications are most commonly associated with chronic pancreatitis related to alcohol abuse. Several other pathologic entities, however, can cause pancreatic calcifications...

We report the case of a 70-year-old woman who consulted for recurrent short episodes of mild-to-moderate abdominal pain. Dilated main pancreatic duct was seen on CAT scan and magnetic resonance, with multiple calcifications and intraductal stones, typical in CP. However, for a more pronounced cystic dilatation in the pancreatic head, we could not exclude the coexistence of a main duct IPMN. ERCP was performed, with pancreatic sphincterotomy and extraction of pancreatic stones, but, at the same time, mucin extrusion was seen from the dilated duct through the papilla...

Diagnosing CP can range from routine in those with severe disease and obvious calcifications on CT imaging to elusive in those patients with early changes in CP. The workup of suspected CP should follow a progressively noninvasive to more invasive STEP-wise approach in a patient with a suspicious clinical presentation and risk factors that raise their pretest probability of disease. After a thorough history and physical examination, basic laboratories should be obtained such as lipase, amylase, metabolic panel, and indirect PFTs (fecal elastase-1, serum trypsin)...

AIM: There is a paucity of literature in pediatric chronic pancreatitis (CP) and most information is derived from adult literature. We, therefore, analyzed our experience of CP to look for clinical profile and long-term outcome. METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2015, 156 consecutive children (≤18 years) diagnosed as CP were included. Their clinical profile, management, and follow-up data were retrieved. Genetic markers (PRSS1, SPINK1, and CFTR) were studied in 40 idiopathic cases...

The performance of transabdominal ultrasound (US) in chronic pancreatitis (CP) following the advances in US technology made during recent decades has not been explored. Our aim in this prospective study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of modern abdominal US compared with the Mayo score in CP. One hundred thirty-four patients referred for suspected CP were included in the study. Fifty-four patients were assigned the diagnosis CP. After inclusion, transabdominal US was performed. Ductal features (calculi, dilations and caliber variations, side-branch dilations and hyper-echoic duct wall margins) and parenchymal features (calcifications, cysts, hyper-echoic foci, stranding, lobulation and honeycombing) were recorded...

OBJECTIVES: Diagnosing chronic pancreatitis remains challenging. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is utilized to evaluate pancreatic disease. Abnormal pancreas function test is considered the "nonhistologic" criterion standard for chronic pancreatitis. We derived a prediction model for abnormal endoscopic pancreatic function test (ePFT) by enriching EUS findings with patient demographic and pancreatitis behavioral risk characteristics. METHODS: Demographics, behavioral risk characteristics, EUS findings, and peak bicarbonate results were collected from patients evaluated for pancreatic disease...
