Author information

  • 1J. J. Hospital and Grant Medical College, Bombay, India.


Hereditary pancreatitis is an idiopathic form of chronic pancreatitis which affects multiple members of a family in an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. Most of the case reports are in caucasians of European descent. In this report, we present our data on four affected members spanning three generations in a family from India. Current data on hereditary pancreatitis are summarized, to revive an interest in this rare form of chronic pancreatitis.
