Non-infective Chronic Pancreatitis

  • A. H. Cruickshank


Discussions at international gatherings such as the Second World Congress of Gastroenterology, held at Munich in 1962, and the Sjmiposium on Pancreatitis, held at Marseilles in 1963 made it clear that the incidence and aetiology of chronic pancreatitis in different countries varied considerably at that time: it was uncommon in England, Switzerland and Czechoslovakia, and in these countries the disease was rarely associated with chronic alcoholism, while in France, Austraha, South Africa and the United States, in addition to being more common, the disease was clearly associated with chronic alcohohsm. In England, chronic pancreatitis is still comparatively uncommon, but in 1974, James et al. pubhshed the results of a survey that suggested that the picture in England might be changing. In a total of 107 patients from the London area, seen between 1968 and 1973, they considered that alcohol had been a probable aetiological factor in nearly half the cases.
