AUTOIMMUNE PANCREATITIS : AN ENTITY DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE

Devinder Kuntal, Bhawan Nangarwal, Mukesh Meel, Rajesh Godara, Pradeep Garg.

Abstract
Autoimmune pancreatitis(AIP) is a sclerosing disorder characterized by autoimmune serology and multiple organ involvement. Inflammatory pseudotumors of AIP have frequently been mistaken as pancreatic tumors and resected surgically. It was considered a disease of western world, but now its incidence in India is rising because of increased awareness and development of clinicoradiological criteria to diagnose it. Since AIP responds dramatically to steroid therapy, accurate diagnosis can avoid major surgical undertakings like pancreatic resection.

Key words: Pancreatitis, autoimmune, pancreatoduodenectomy
