Clinical significance of extrapancreatic lesions in autoimmune pancreatitis

Itaru NaitohTakashi Joh


To clarify the frequency and clinical significance of extrapancreatic lesions in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). The frequency and clinical characteristics of extrapancreatic lesions during the clinical course of AIP were investigated retrospectively in 64 patients with AIP. The predictive factors for relapse of AIP at clinical onset were also examined. Extrapancreatic lesions occurred in 95% (61/64) during the clinical course of AIP. The frequencies of sclerosing cholangitis, sclerosing sialadenitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and mediastinal or hilar lymphadenopathy were 84% (54/64), 23% (15/64), 16% (10/64), and 77% (27/35), respectively. Patients with sclerosing sialadenitis or extrapancreatic bile duct sclerosing cholangitis had a significantly higher serum immunoglobulin G concentration than those without (P = 0.005 and P = 0.016, respectively). Univariate analysis revealed that sclerosing sialadenitis (P = 0.005), diffuse pancreatic ductal changes (P = 0.028), and a high serum immunoglobulin G concentration (P = 0.030) at clinical onset of AIP were significant predictive factors for relapse. Multivariate analysis revealed that diffuse pancreatic ductal changes (P = 0.005) and sclerosing sialadenitis (P = 0.012) were signif...Continue Reading

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.
