Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of serum pancreatic hyperenzymemia as a primary manifestation of sarcoidosis; pancreatic involvement was confirmed by endoscopic ultrasonography which revealed a notable glandular fibrosis of the pancreas. It is important that patients with systemic sarcoidosis who have increased serum levels of amylase and lipase be checked in order to detect the presence of possible pancreatic involvement. Endoscopic ultrasonography represents the technique of choice used to confirm the clinical suspicion of pancreatic inflammation.
