1 post in this topic

Short-term and long-term outcomes of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). Most AIP patients treated with steroid had good short-term and long-term outcomes clinically, morphologically, and functionally. Hilar bile duct stenosis and elevated serum IgG4 levels were predictors of AIP relapse after steroid therapy. As some patients developed pancreatic stone formation or a malignancy during or after steroid therapy, AIP patients should be rigorously followed up. Takuma K.
