About this book

​This book provides up-to-date information on all aspects of autoimmune pancreatitis, a unique form of pancreatitis characterized clinically by frequent presentation with obstructive jaundice and dramatic response to steroids, histologically by a lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate with fibrosis, and radiologically by pancreatic enlargement. Current concepts regarding the disease and its classification into subtypes 1 and 2 are explained, and clinical, serological, and histopathological findings are carefully described. Imaging features on all the relevant modalities are illustrated, covering both the pancreas and other involved organs. Current and emerging therapeutic strategies, including steroids, immunomodulatory drugs, and rituximab, are then discussed. The reader will find the book to be an excellent aid to the diagnosis of autoimmune pancreatitis and its differentiation from pancreatobiliary malignancies, as well as a clear guide to treatment.

Reviews

“This is an excellent, very detailed, and comprehensive analysis of autoimmune pancreatitis. … The book is written for clinicians who work with patients with autoimmune pancreatitis. It will be an excellent reference for many years to come. … This is a great reference for gastroenterologists and specialists on the pancreas. This is probably one of the best books for clinicians with an extended interest in the pancreas related to autoimmune pancreatitis.” (Sunny Lo, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2016)
