Autoimmune Pancreatitis in Two Adolescent Boys

Samer Saade, Cesar Yaghi, Joseph Bou Jaoude, Bassam Eid


In this current review, we report the cases of autoimmune pancreatitis in two adolescent boys. The diagnosis was made essentially on the basis of imaging result and response to steroid therapy. One of them developed ulcerative colitis 1 year later, which was in favor of the autoimmune pancreatitis diagnosis. Since the presentation of autoimmune pancreatitis can mimic other conditions, a prompt diagnosis should be made, helping the patient receive adequate treatment and avoid unnecessary surgical interventions.
