Hereditary pancreatitis

PRSS1-related hereditary pancreatitis (HP) is characterized by inflammation of the pancreas that progresses from acute (sudden onset; duration <6 months) to recurrent acute (>1 episode of acute pancreatitis) to chronic (duration >6 months). The range of symptoms and disease course vary from person to person. On average, acute pancreatitis occurs by age ten years and chronic pancreatitis by age 20 years. Manifestations of acute pancreatitis can range from vague abdominal pain lasting one to three days to severe abdominal pain lasting days to weeks and requiring hospitalization. Chronic pancreatitis typically manifests as episodic or continuous mild to severe abdominal pain, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency leading to maldigestion, and pancreatic endocrine insufficiency (glucose intolerance progressing to type I diabetes mellitus). The risk for pancreatic cancer increases after age 50 years. [from GeneReviews]
