Pancreatic pseudotumors associated with multifocal idiopathic fibrosclerosis
- 27 Downloads
Two patients with multifocal idiopathic fibrosclerosis and sclerosing cholangitis developed biliary obstruction due to a fibrotic pancreatic pseudotumor. The masslike fibrosis mimicked pancreatic carcinoma on sonography and cholangiopancreatography. In one patient sonography was successfully used to assess the response of the pseudotumor to corticosteroid therapy.
