Hereditary Pancreatitis

Hereditary pancreatitis is an autosomal dominant disorder that presents as a dysfunction of the pan-

creas (inflammation) during the first decade of life. Usually each episode will last between 2 days and 2 weeks. US will reveal a shrunken fibrotic pancreas with calcifications, and CT will show dilatation of the ductal system, pancreatic stones or pancreatic complications (Fig. 4.20). Approximately 15% of patients with hereditary pancreatitis may have pancreatic carcinoma in adulthood.
