640 Possible Causes for Pancreatic Calcification

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Unlike recurrent acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis is characterised by reduced pancreatic exocrine function, malabsorption, diabetes, and pancreatic calcifications.[] Worldwide, alcohol is the major risk factor for chronic pancreatitis (70% to 80%).[]

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    A diagnosis of chronic calcific pancreatitis with a left perinephric abscess was made and a gastroenterological opinion was sought.[] […] stone (calculus), pancreatolith 膵石灰化 pancreatic calcification 膵線維化 pancreatic fibrosis 花筵状線維化 storiform fibrosis 膵内胆管浸潤 intrapancreatic bile duct invasion 膵嚢胞 pancreatic[] During the operation dense calcification was noted in the parieties and dense adhesion of the omentum was noted with the colon and stomach parieties and thick pus was drained[]

  • Chronic Pancreatitis

    […] to marked ductal lesions, endocrine and exocrine insufficiency, pancreatic calcifications, and pancreatic pseudocysts.[] A 64-year-old man with recurrent acute pancreatitis was diagnosed as early CP and later progressed to definite CP with multiple pancreatic calcifications at the age of 69.[] Calcification is unusual. The pancreatic duct is invariably dilated.[]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    Table 3 Imaging in acute pancreatitis Modality Pertinent findings Abdominal X-ray Ileus, loss of psoas shadow, sentinel loop, pancreatic calcification, and calcified gallstones[] calcification, and pleural effusion (usually on the left). [27] It is noteworthy that the abdominal plain film can be completely normal in patients with acute pancreatitis[] Additionally, evidence of nephrolithiasis can sometimes be seen as well as foreign bodies or the telltale pancreatic calcifications of chronic pancreatitis.[]

  • Hereditary Pancreatitis

    We demonstrate that pancreatic duct abnormalities, not previously described, are present prior to the appearance of the typical pancreatic calcifications of HP.[] During the ensuing years she had recurrent episodes of abdominal pain and chronic pancreatitis with extensive pancreatic calcifications was finally demonstrated.[] In subjects with R122C mutation symptoms, pancreatic calcifications, main pancreatic duct changes, diabetes, steatorrhea, pancreatic cancer and surgery were recorded.[]

  • Pancreatic Ductal Stone

    Pancreatic calcifications are pathognomonic for severe CP and are located exclusively in the ductal system.[] [Crossref] Choi EK, Lehman GA (2012) Update on endoscopic management of main pancreatic duct stones in chronic calcific pancreatitis. Korean J Intern Med 27: 20-29.[] Ascites may complicate chronic calcific pancreatitis as a result of portal hypertension or lymphatic obstruction in 1-2% patients.[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Differential diagnoses Disease Characteristics Notes Chronic pancreatitis Classic triad of pancreatic calcification, steatorrhea, and diabetes mellitus is observed in one-third[] The presence and distribution of pancreatic intraductal calcifications (defined as areas of hyperattenuation on nonenhanced images) were recorded.[] Are pancreatic calcifications specific for the diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis? A multidetector-row CT analysis. Clin Radiol. 2009; 64 :903–911. [ PubMed ] 70.[]

  • Pancreatic Pseudocyst

    Few calcifications noted in pancreatic parenchyma.[] We present a very rare case of infeasibility of endoscopic drainage of a postinflammatory pancreatic pseudocyst, impressing the stomach, due to cyst wall calcifications.[] Because there was no evidence of pancreatic calcification on CT and the ERCP did not show any ductal irregularities, we assume pseudocyst formation occurred as a complication[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    pancreatitis.[] Conclusions Mutations of the CF TR gene and the 5T genotype are associated with chronic pancreatitis.[] Introduction In 1969, Paris et al. 1 described two siblings who had the autosomal recessive disease cystic fibrosis and whose father and paternal uncle and grandfather had chronic calcific[]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    , gallstones Moans from CNS disturbance: Depression, lethargy, seizures Also weakness, fatigue, calcifications of aortic and mitral valves; metastatic calcification in stomach[] […] lipase activity stimulated by Ca 2 CNS dysfunction anxiety, confusion, coma result of metastatic calcification of the brain Please rate topic.[] Long-standing hypercalcaemia causes corneal calcification, which is usually asymptomatic.[]
