A krónikus pancreatitis és a pancreascarcinoma differenciáldiagnózisa

Translated title of the contribution: The differentiation of chronic pancreatitis from pancreatic cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The poor prognosis of pancreatic cancer is mainly due to late diagnosis. The differentiation between pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis is difficult, because the two diseases cause similar clinical symptoms and morphological alterations. Furthermore, chronic pancreatitis is associated with an increased risk of malignant transformation, thus the two diseases may be present simultaneously. The recent developments in molecular genetic tests and in imaging techniques, such as multidetector computed tomography, magnetic resonance cholangio-pancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration and positron emission tomography/computed tomography, have fundamentally transformed the differentiation of the two disorders. This paper provides a systematic review of the recent evidence-based results concerning the differentiation of pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis.
