Abstract

PURPOSE:

The purpose was to describe the magnetic resonance imaging appearance of the brain and spine in a patient.

METHOD:

A patient with pancreatitis and neurologic findings is described.

RESULTS:

Our patient had an inflammatory condition involving the pancreas and orbital muscles, a constellation of findings that should suggest systemic IgG-related disease (SIRD).

CONCLUSIONS:

Patients with multiorgan inflammatory disease, especially those involving the pancreas and other organs, should be evaluated for possible SIRD.
