Description
Some cases of chronic idiopathic pancreatitis associated with autoimmune disease havebeen reported. The autoimmune pancreatitis revealed a diffusely irregular and narrowedpancreatic duct and responded well to steroid treatment. We report a case of autoimmunepancreatitis with a significant role of Gallium scintigraphy in response to steroid therapy.A sixty seven-year-old male, with upper abdominal pain, appetite loss and thirst, presenteddiffuse pancreatic swelling on abdominal ultrasonography, and diffuse irregular narrowingof the pancreatic duct and stenosis of the distal common bile duct. Gallium-67 scitigraphyrevealed high uptake in the whole pancreas. The patient underwent pancreatic biopsy torule out pancreatic cancer and malignant lymphoma. The definitive diagnosis was autoimmunepancreatitis. The patient recovered quickly with steroid therapy after the biopsy.
