Dziedziczne zapalenie trzustki u 5-letniej dziewczynki – opis przypadku

Publication date: Available online 7 June 2017 Source:Pediatria Polska Author(s): Barbara Iwańczak, Tomasz Jarmoliński, Katarzyna Akutko, Agnieszka Borys-Iwanicka Hereditary pancreatitis is a rare disease with autosomal dominant inheritance. In 1996, Whitcomb et al. linked it to the mutation of the gene encoding cationic trypsinogen PRSS1. The onset of symptoms in children occurs at the age of about 10 years. In this work, a case of a 5-year-old girl with heterozygotic mutation p.R122 PRSS1 gene and family history of chronic pancreatitis in father is presented. The mother of the girl's father and his sister died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 37 and 50, respectively, and the father's brother suffers from chronic pancreatitis. Moreover, p.M470V homozygotic mutation of the CFTR gene has been present in the girl. The patient has suffered from mild acute pancreatitis twice. The first episode was induced by Epstein-Barr virus and the second by a dietary error. Ultrasound study of the pancreas did not reveal any pathology. At present, the girl is well and does not report any ailments, sticks to the diet and is under medical control.

Conclusions: Asymptomatic adductor and pubic abnormalities on MRI are frequently present but vary greatly between selected studies. No exact conclusions can be drawn about the prevalence of asymptomatic adductor or pubic findings on MRI due to high heterogeneity between studies. Furthermore, the one article about ultrasound was not enough to draw conclusions for ultrasound findings. It is nonetheless clear that clinicians should be careful to make diagnoses purely based on radiologic findings. A thorough clinical examination and individual interpretation conducted by the clinician remains indispensable. PMID: 32213080 ...

Authors: Goto D, Komeda K, Uwatoko N, Nakashima M, Koike M, Kawai K, Kodama Y, Miyazawa A, Tanaka I, Hase T, Morise M, Hasegawa Y, Kawabe T, Sato M Abstract We evaluated the value of UHRF1, a regulator of methylation, as a biomarker for lung cancer. UHRF1 is expressed at higher levels in both lung adenocarcinoma (AD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SQ); however, a meta-analysis showed that UHRF1 expression is correlated with worse survival in patients with AD but not in those with SQ. UHRF1 knockdown suppressed the growth of lung cancer cell lines through G1 cell cycle arrest in some cell lines. These results suggest ...

We present the case of a 43-year-old female diagnosed with a pancreatobiliary maljunction and an associated stenosis of the bile duct, secondary to an episode of acute pancreatitis. She underwent several endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography procedures over the course of three years, without improvement of the stenosis, and therefore a surgical approach was taken. Prior to the surgical intervention, magnetic resonance imaging showed the presence of an 11-mm polyp in the gallbladder. A histological study of the surgical sample identified intramucosal adenocarcinoma over a tubular adenoma of the gallbladder. Pancrea...

AbstractAutoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a chronic fibroinflammatory disease of the pancreas that belongs to the spectrum of immunoglobulin G-subclass4-related diseases (IgG4-RD) and typically presents with obstructive jaundice. Idiopathic duct-centric pancreatitis (IDCP) is a closely related but distinct disease that mimics AIP radiologically but manifests clinically most commonly as recurrent acute pancreatitis in young individuals with concurrent inflammatory bowel disease. IgG4 levels are often elevated in AIP and normal in IDCP. Histologically, lymphoplasmacytic acinar inflammation and storiform fibrosis are seen in b...

Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare disease, the pathophysiological understanding of which has been greatly improved over the last years. The most common form, type 1 AIP belongs to the IgG4-related diseases and must be distinguished from type 2 AIP, which is a much rarer entity associated with chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Clinically, there is an overlap with pancreatic cancer. Imaging and further criteria, such as serological and histological parameters are utilized for a differentiation between both entities in order to select the appropriate therapy and t...

Abstract: Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare disease with clinical presentations that greatly mimic pancreatic cancer (PC). It is critical for clinicians to distinguish AIP from PC because their treatments and prognoses are entirely different. Typical images show characteristic features such as diffuse pancreatic swelling and strictures of the main pancreatic duct (MPD). However, AIP may present as a localized pancreatic mass, in which case it is very difficult to differentiate from PC. Here, we report a case of a 40-year-old man with computed tomography (CT) imaging studies confirming an area of low-density neoplasm ...
