Medical Management of Chronic Pancreatitis in Children: Maximizing Treatment and Improving Outcomes
Chronic pancreatitis (CP) in children is associated with significant morbidity and poor quality of life. The incidence of CP in children has risen over the past few decades and is approaching that seen in the adult population. CP is an inflammatory disease resulting in irreversible changes in the pancreas including acinar cell loss, fibrosis, ductal changes, and calcifications. Patients with CP may suffer from abdominal pain and complications of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and diabetes mellitus.
Medical Management of Chronic Pancreatitis in Children: Maximizing Treatment and Improving Outcomes will bring together leading experts to discuss how to ensure that childhood CP is recognized early and its sequalae treated promptly.
