BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES To distinguish autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), especially focal type, from pancreatic cancer, is a greatest challenge for clinician. The aim of the study is to compare the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and accuracy of combined serum IgG4 and CA19-9 levels to differentiate AIP from pancreatic cancer by HISORt, Asian and international consensus diagnostic criteria. METHODS We measured serum IgG4, CEA, and CA19-9 levels in… CONTINUE READING
