Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis (LPSP) is a unique form of chronic pancreatitis and a tumor-like lesion simulating a carcinoma process clinically and radiographically.

CASE REPORT:

Herein, we presented a case of a patient with LPSP mimicking pancreatic carcinoma, who was admitted to our institution and subsequently treated with a Whipple procedure. This case typifies the growing awareness of this new clinicopathologic entity and the importance for LPSP to be included in the differential diagnosis of pancreaticobiliary disease.

CONCLUSION:

LPSP represents a diagnostic challenge which deserves more attention in the clinical management. An accurate preoperative diagnosis of LPSP can avoid pancreaticoduodenectomy in these patients.
