548 Possible Causes for Pancreatic Atrophy

  • Agenesis of Uterus

    Pseudo-agenesis of the pancreas refers to the atrophy of the pancreatic body and tail secondary to acute/chronic pancreatitis with sparing of the head and uncinate process[] MRCP/ERCP provide conclusive diagnosis in this condition by demonstrating minor ductal system in pseudoagenesis due to acquired pancreatic atrophy and its absence in dorsal[] pancreatic agenesis / pancreatic hypoplasia [ 2 ] ( Figures 2, 3, and 4 ).[]

  • Marasmus

    The extent of pancreatic atrophy and fibrosis was compared with fatty change in the liver.[] Pancreatic atrophy was common, and often associated with severe fatty change in the liver, but also occurred in marasmic children with scanty liver fat.[] These findings support the pioneer paper by Blackburn and Vinijchaikul (1969) and underline the importance of pancreatic atrophy in the pathology of protein-energy malnutrition[]

  • Pancreatic Duct Obstruction

    Low pressure injection of glue into the pancreatic duct has led to a reproducible pancreatic atrophy with preservation of the islets.[] Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors should be considered when CT shows a small hypervascular mass associated with upstream pancreatic duct dilatation or atrophy.[] Baggenstoss change Pancreatemphraxis Pancreatic acinar atrophy Pancreatic acinar fistula Pancreatic and peripancreatic necrosis Pancreatic aseptic necrosis Pancreatic atrophy[]

  • Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

    Microdeletions of 17q12 encompassing TCF2 are associated with maturity-onset of diabetes of the young type 5, cystic renal disease, pancreatic atrophy, Mullerian aplasia in[]

  • Pancreatic Atrophy

    Pancreatic atrophy occurred in many HCC patients after 2 y of treatment with sorafenib. Patients who experienced pancreatic atrophy had a better tumor response and OS.[] New onset of diabetes is closely associated with pancreatic atrophy after steroid therapy.[] We have observed four cases of pancreatic atrophy following single episodes of acute pancreatitis.[]

  • Pancreatic Insufficiency

    The first patient had weight loss arising from steatorrhea secondary to severe pancreatic insufficiency (lipase output result 3% of normal) due to pancreatic atrophy.[] Pancreolauryl test was positive at 12.2% and CT scan showed pancreatic atrophy, but no calcification.[] There was no correlation between the occurrence of pancreatic steatosis nor pancreatic atrophy and a decreased faecal elastase-1 (FE1) level.[]

  • Medullary Cystic Kidney Disease

    atrophy Hypomagnesemia, hypokalemia Liver enzyme test abnormalities Histopathologic changes common to these disorders include Interstitial fibrosis Tubular atrophy Thickening[] […] diabetes mellitus of the Young type 5 (MODY5) Renal cyst and diabetes syndrome (RCAD) Frequent childhood presentation Prenatal ultrasound findings Genital abnormalities Pancreatic[]

  • Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young

    The hepatocyte nuclear factor-1-beta (HNF1B) gene is responsible for MODY type 5 (MODY5) with distinctive clinical features, including pancreatic atrophy and renal disease[]

  • Phenylketonuria

    Histologic findings included thymic depletion, hepatocellular vacuolation, and exocrine pancreatic atrophy.[]

  • Hyperlipoproteinemia Type 1

    Serum triglycerides stabilized with extremely low-fat diet although he subsequently developed pancreatic atrophy.[] Visceral xanthomas and pancreatic atrophy can be part of the spectrum of clinical features in patients with T1HLP.[]
