TB lymphadenitis may be suspected when a contrast-enhanced CT scan demonstrates low density mass surrounded by an enhancing solid rim, or when ERCP demonstrates a normal pancreatogram
with a smooth narrowing of the CBD.
CP was diagnosed by the presence of at least 1 of the following criteria: (a) substantial changes in the pancreatogram
shown byendoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP); (b) pancreatic calcification shown by computed tomography or endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS); and (c) clinical presentation of abdominal pain with increases in serum pancreatic enzymes for at least 6 months.
was done after cannulating the pancreatic duct through the major papilla.
A separate duodenotomy or a distal pancreatic resection to obtain a prograde pancreatogram
are never indicated.
