588 Possible Causes for Pancreatic Atrophy

  • Pancreatic Atrophy

    25.7-36.7 mo) among patients who did not develop pancreatic atrophy (P 0.009).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We have observed four cases of pancreatic atrophy following single episodes of acute pancreatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pancreatic atrophy was observed in 12 patients and not in 19 patients after the steroid therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pancreatic Duct Obstruction

    Low pressure injection of glue into the pancreatic duct has led to a reproducible pancreatic atrophy with preservation of the islets.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors should be considered when CT shows a small hypervascular mass associated with upstream pancreatic duct dilatation or atrophy.[jhu.pure.elsevier.com] CONCLUSION: Serotonin produced by pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors can induce fibrosis and pancreatic duct obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The inflammatory reaction was clearly shown to precede the pancreatic acinar atrophy, and the findings suggested that lymphocytic pancreatitis leads to atrophy of the pancreas[doi.org] , E 1999 Exocrine pancreatic atrophy in German Shepherd Dogs and Rough-coated Collies: an end result of lymphocytic pancreatitis Vet Pathol 36 530 541 CrossRef PubMed Google[doi.org]

  • Renal Cysts and Diabetes Syndrome

    When diabetes occurs with HNF1B mutations, there is usually associated pancreatic atrophy and exocrine insuficiency.[diapedia.org] atrophy.[ijpeonline.biomedcentral.com] atrophy. 10 The commonest renal abnormality is cystic disease (66% of cases) although the most specific phenotype is familial hypoplastic glomerulocystic kidney disease.[bjd-abcd.com]

  • Autoimmune Pancreatitis

    During surgery, another small tumor was also found in the atrophied body; therefore, a total pancreatectomy was performed under the diagnosis of multiple pancreatic cancers[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The disease course is variable, but loss of organ function (especially pancreatic exocrine failure and pancreatic atrophy) may occur. 2016 S. Karger AG, Basel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Stone Formation and Pancreatic Atrophy in Autoimmune Pancreatitis.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    , and breast cancers; cirrhosis of the liver possibly requiring transplantation; CNS injury (brain atrophy and peripheral neuropathy with effects on memory, cognition, walking[clinicaladvisor.com] […] long term effects of ongoing alcohol abuse, including the potential for irreversible harm to multiple organ systems including: predisposition to oral, esophageal, gastric, pancreatic[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Tropical Pancreatitis

    Pancreatic atrophy (53%) was also a major feature of TP. Compared with ERCP, ultrasonography had a sensitivity of 94% and a specificity of 100%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cardinal features of chronic pancreatitis are – pancreatic atrophy, calcification, and pancreatic duct dilatation. Similar findings were seen in the study by A.I.[jemds.com] Morphologically, TCP is characterized by pancreatic ductal dilation, large dense calculi ( 6 ), pancreatic atrophy and fibrosis ( 7–9 ).[academic.oup.com]

  • Insulin Resistance

    Jadhao, Pancreatic atrophy caused by dietary selenium deficiency induces hypoinsulinemic hyperglycemia via global down-regulation of selenoprotein encoding genes in broilers[doi.org]

  • Pancreatic Ductal Stone

    Post surgery, abdominal pain is completely relieved, pancreatic atrophy is halted, diabetes comes under control as insulin starts releasing in the circulation and steatorrhea[practo.com] (A) , (B) CT before ESWL showing the pancreatic stone and pancreatic atrophy (arrows).[bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com] Obstructive Chronic obstruction of the pancreatic duct by malignant or benign processes will lead to atrophy and chronic pancreatitis in the pancreatic parenchyma upstream[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Dermatitis

    The latter gene encodes for wolframin, a tetrameric protein that may serve as a novel endoplasmic reticular calcium channel in pancreatic beta cells and neurons.[emedicine.medscape.com] Mutations in WFS1 lead to Wolfram syndrome, which is also known by the acronym DIDMOAD (Diabetes Insipidus, Diabetes Mellitus, Optic Atrophy, Deafness). [15] Another recessive[emedicine.medscape.com]
