Autoimmune pancreatitis AIP is a unique form ofpancreatitis which has autoimmune features. AIP has clinical presentations that greatly mimic pancreatic cancer PC.It is critical for clinicians to distinguish AIP from PC because theirtreatments and prognoses are entirely different. We report a 62-year-old man withobstructive jaundice and dilation in the main pancreatic duct MPD. The diagnosis of AIPwas based on diagnostic criteria by the elevated IgG-4 serum levels and thetypical imaging such as diffuse pancreatic swelling and dilation in the commonbiliary duct CBD. The difference of the imaging finding in our case is the expanding of the MPD, which is usually described to be stenosis in many literatures. Finally, the patient was confirmed with type I AIP according to the diagnosiscriteria. After the steroid treatment lasting 3 months, the patient was gradually recovered. We present the case and take a review of literature in order to improvethe early identification of AIP.
