Resumo

PINTO K., Esteban et al. Autoimmune pancreatitis associated with diabetes mellitus. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2019, vol.147, n.5, pp.668-672. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872019000500668.

Autoimmune pancreatitis is uncommon, responds to steroids and is usually associated with diabetes mellitus. We report a 73 year-old male who, two months after a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, presented with obstructive jaundice and weight loss. Abdominal magnetic resonance imaging was suggestive of an autoimmune pancreatitis and serum IgG4 was 339 mg/dl (normal range 3-201). The patient was treated with prednisone 40 mg/day with a good clinical and laboratory response. During outpatient care, the dose of prednisone was tapered.
