Abstrakt

The aim of this review is to summarise the status of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), which is a rare disease, occasionally misdiagnosed as pancreatic cancer.
AIP consists of two distinct types, which differ in histopathology, association with other diseases and age of onset. Clinically, it is characterised by obstructive jaundice and abdominal pain. The disease shows rapid response to steroids. Rituximab can also be used as induction therapy. Often long-term treatment is necessary to maintain remission.
